what we do
We bring Oakville’s caring, philanthropic women together for 4 one-hour long conscious raising giving circles per year. Each member commits to donating $100 per meeting. Three randomly selected charities are presented, all nominated by members, votes are cast, and one local charity becomes the charity of choice. The entire donation pot turns into a COMPOUND CARNG cheque of $10,000+ or more in one hour! Thats not all! When the caring and sharing task is complete, we invite members to stay for an optional social hour to build friendships with like minded ladies like themselves. It's truly an authentic experience!
Join today or come to the next Giving Circle as our guest.
Our local Giving Circle isn't restricted only to women! Check out our Oakville family of chapters;

Are you interested in making a positive impact within the Oakville community, but have limited time to give? If so, then 100 Women Who Care Oakville might be for you!
The 100 WWCO was founded in 2013 by Dana Peever, now organized by a dynamic small group of leading ladies. The Oakville chapter is one of more than 600 similar Giving Circles located worldwide that focus on coordinating funding for local, community charitable organizations. The members gather at quarterly meetings for one hour to hear three short presentations on local nonprofits in need. Members vote and each person commits 100% of their $100 donation to the chosen charity, resulting in a collective, impactful donation. To date, over $225,000 has been invested
into the Oakville community by 100WWCO.
The chapter is run entirely by volunteers with no administrative fees solicited from members. This way 100% of the donations collected from chapter members go directly to the charity. In turn, each member who contributes recieves a personal tax receipt for $100 directly back from the charity of choice.
Membership is always open!
