How do charities get in the running?

Nominate Charity 

- Each member of 100 Women Who Care Oakville is allowed to nominate one local charity of their choice for any given meeting.  


- The charity must serve Oakville and area populations and must be a registered charity/cause, in good standing with the CRA (able to issue tax receipts to members) in order to be eligible for consideration. 


Many of our members join so that they can learn more about our local charities. This is a great way to do it!


The charity that is selected to receive our group’s donation will be invited to the next meeting to give a 5-minute speech on how our donation was spent and the impact that was made.

Charities of Choice - Oakville 2018/19/20

The charities listed below have had the potential of becoming a Charity of Choice at one of our four annual meetings. We have created the list to encourage our members to learn more about the services in the community, and to assist in building our number of nominations per meeting.

The list is updated regularly. If you are aware of a charity that should be added to the list or have any questions pertaining to the list, please send your email to Michaela Hutchison - Co-Director at

Charities highlighted in purple below are past recipients of a donation, they can be reconsidered after a three-year waiting period.
