Women Who Care make final donation of 2022 for outdoor education

The 100 Women Who Care (WWC) Grey Bruce recently made their final donation of the year. The chosen recipient of the November meeting was the Bluewater Education Foundation, which supports the Bluewater Outdoor Education Center (OEC). They received a donation of $19,700 – our largest donation yet.
They will be directing these funds to their ’50th to the Future’ campaign to increase their ability to create meaningful, outdoor experiences for all kids and adults who attend. We will look forward to hearing from Mike Schwindt (Development Manager, Bluewater Outdoor Education Foundation) at our first meeting of 2023, April 1st. He will talk with us about the work they do and how our donation made an impact at the Outdoor Education Centre.

In 2022, the 100 Women Who Care (WWC) Grey Bruce have donated a grand total of $68,600 to four charities in the Grey Bruce community and have increased our membership over the year by 40 new members.
As you know, we are a group of women who get together four times a year, in person and on Zoom (Hybrid meetings), each time the meeting is 1 hour and each member donates $100 per meeting. Each member commits a total of $400 over the year. Next year, we will meet in April, May, September and November. We welcome new members to check us out on our website, https://100womengreybruce.ca/, send us any questions at WWCGreyBruce@outlook.com or attend a meeting to see if we are a good match.
