Feminist Health Fund receives large donation
- Published: June 22, 2022
Last week, members of the nonprofit Feminist Health Fund met with members of the giving group 100 Women Making a Difference in Greene County, to accept a large donation of $12,600.
The Feminist Health Fund, which helps women around Greene County pay for a variety of health-related costs, launched a fund drive in May with the goal of raising $35,000.
100 Women Making a Difference in Greene County formed in 2010. The giving group — which actually includes more than 100 women — meets four times each year to consider funding pitches from nonprofit and charitable causes benefitting Greene County. The group then votes on which cause they’d like to support, after which each member writes a check for $100 to the chosen cause. Over 12 years, the group has donated nearly $500,000.
“One hundred dollars every quarter — some people spend that much on coffee!” said villager and 100 Women member Sandy McHugh.
Villager Macy Reynolds made the appeal to 100 Women at its most recent meeting. The resulting 126 $100 donations helped the Feminist Health Fund reach more than a third of its funding goal in one fell swoop.
“You’ve increased our capacity to support women in this community so quickly,” Feminist Health Fund board member Alex Klug said. “I can’t thank you enough.”
