100 Women Who Care CBRM
Our Chapter


100 Women Who Care CBRM was formed in February 2014 by co-founders Deana and Samantha Lloy. Their goal was to bring together 100 (or more) local women to raise awareness of and contribute to non-profit and charitable organisations located in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM). With all of the non-profit and charitable organisations located in the CBRM working to make our community a better, healthier and stronger place to live, it is difficult to give them all the attention they deserve. By creating the CBRM chapter of 100 Women Who Care, the goal was to work with local women looking to make a difference in their community.

100  Who Care Alliance 

The first 100 Women Who Care group was formed in November 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, USA. At their first one-hour meeting, the Jackson 100 Women Who Care group raised $10,000 to buy new baby cribs for an organisation in their city! Their membership has now grown to nearly 300 members and other cities across Canada and the United States are forming groups. 


There are now more than 900 chapters either fully operational (650) or under development (more than 250) and they include women, men, people, kids, and teens chapters. Karen saw people for their strengths and realized that when 100 or more people come together in a room, each person becomes a powerful force for doing good work while lifting up your community.

Our Expectations

  • Bring together 100 (or more) women in CBRM who care about local community causes and who are committed to community service.

  • Meet for an hour.

  • Jointly select a local charity or non-profit organisation from three randomly chosen which were nominated ahead of time by members.

  • You must be an active member in good standing to have your nominated charities move forward.

  • Each member will write a $100 cheque to the selected organisation and watch how the group’s commitment turns into a $10,000+ donation.

  • Each member will provide a self adressesed and stamped envelope for return of their income tax receipt.

  • If you are unable to attend a meeting you are still committed to contributing your $100. It is important to provide this prior to the meeting so the donation can be awarded that evening. Part of the excitement is being able to award the donation that evening and take a photo for the newspaper.

  • If you wish to remove your name from 100 Women Who Care CBRM membership please provide a letter of withdrawal.

  • With four meetings per year, witness how $40,000+ can improve the lives of our neighbours when placed in the hands of well-deserving organisations working to serve the local community.
