100+ Women Who Care
What is 100+ Women Who Care?
100+ Women Who Care meets four times a year for a one-hour meeting.  Members join the organization annually and sign a commitment to donate $500 per year. The first $100 commitment supports an endowment fund for the 100+ Women Who Care organization to use to address future needs of the community. In addition, every member pledges to donate $100 at each of the four meetings (whether they attend or not) to be given to a selected Tippecanoe County non-profit organization.

How does it work?
At each meeting, a member can put her name along with the name of a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization or a government entity she would like to have considered in a drawing at each meeting. At the meeting, three members’ submissions will be chosen, and each will be given five minutes to provide an explanation of the organization and its services. Five minutes will also be provided for questions if needed. At the end of the presentations, the attendees vote, ballots are counted, and a winner is announced. The women then write their checks to the selected charity. Membership has grown to over 100 members. The organization selected receives over $10,000! The larger the group grows, the greater impact we make!

Douglas W. Eberle Board Governance Series
The Douglas W. Eberle Not-For-Profit Board Governance Series was established in 2008 to strengthen and sustain Not-For-Profit Boards in Tippecanoe and the surrounding counties. NCHS is partnering with The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette and United Way of Greater Lafayette to present the education series. The purpose of this program is to build knowledge about responsible oversight and governance, and effective responses to policy and management issues faced by today’s Not-For-Profit volunteer leaders. The continuing education series is designed for, and limited to, Board volunteers and Executive Director teams.

Sessions are held on the first Wednesday of each month at the Lafayette Country Club.
