Who We Are

100 Women Who Care Douglas County, CO was started in 2023 by a group of passionate women who wanted to make a difference in their communities. Harvesting the power of friends and like-minded women, we have set out to learn about local causes and their needs, and donate to help these wonderful organizations.


“ We are each strong in our own right, but together we are stronger.”
