Jefferson County Chapter 

Join our network of 50 women invested in empowering nonprofits and improving their communities. No committees, no fundraising, no event planning, no silent auction, but in the span of one hour $2,500 is raised for a neighborhood charity.

The annual commitment is $200.00 with payments of $50.00 per meeting.

    In response to the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, we are hosting a special Zoom meeting on May 19th to select a total of six charities to receive funds using our reserve monies plus our grant.

    We will hear 2-3 minute presentations from the following organizations on how COVID -19 has impacted them and how a grant would be used:

    1. Crossroads House – Joyce Hughes
    2. Haus of Peace- Sue Trepte
    3. Badgerland After School Enrichment Program (BASE) Formerly Boys & Girls Club of Fort Atkinson – Alicia Norris
    4. Rock River Community Clinic- Formerly Community Dental and Rock River Free Clinic- Cori Olin
