Established in 2019, the 100 Plus Women Comox Valley is an impact giving organization inspired by other chapters on Vancouver Island and throughout North America who belong to the 100 Plus Who Care Alliance. The mandate for each of the chapters is to give back to their respective communities. Each chapter member votes and donates $100 to a nominated local charity four times a year. Collective donations create significant impacts for selected charities and support them in moving large projects and initiatives forward.
