January 29, 2014 — Campbell, Calif. — The Silicon Valley Chapter of 100+ Women Who Care, a giving circle where members nominate local organizations to receive funding, today announced that an anonymous donor has matched the funds raised at its second meeting.
At the January meeting, members chose The Grateful Garment Project, an organization with the mission to ensure that every victim of a sexual crime who crosses the threshold of a Sexual Assault Response Team facility or who seeks medical attention and/or law enforcement involvement is provided with whatever new clothing, toiletries, snacks, and other miscellaneous items that he or she may require.
At the January meeting, Star Vista, The Grateful Garment Project and Casa de Clara were presented as organizations that needed funding. The Grateful Garment Project received the most votes and received a total of $3,000 from 100+ Women Who Care Silicon Valley members. After the meeting concluded, an anonymous donor matched that amount by donating $3,000 to Casa de Clara. Including the anonymous donation, 100+ Women Who Care Silicon Valley has raised more than $9,000 for local charities in just two meetings.
The next meeting of 100+ Women Who Care Silicon Valley is Wednesday April 9 at Sonoma Chicken Coop in Campbell, CA at 5:30 pm. For more information and to become a member, visit www.100womensv.org or contact Jill Mitsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
