our impact

We have had the honor of working with dozens of organizations through the 100EW Consulting Program. Collectively, we have raised millions of dollars to help make an impact in our communities. It is a pleasure to share the stories of many of these successful projects with you. We hope your story will be here soon.

The Ebell of Los Angeles

“The Ebell of Los Angeles has a long tradition of women as fundraisers, community leaders, and activists, but we found ourselves needing to cultivate an entirely new generation of fundraisers within our membership and board. The 100 Extraordinary Women campaign was the perfect way to introduce our members to the concept and practices of person-to-person fundraising. In just a few short months we had over a dozen members involved and succeeded in raising over $130,000! It has energized our organization and put us in a much better place to start tackling our major fundraising goals.”

Milwaukee Soldiers Home

With pledges from 168 women and 4 generous challenge grants, the Soldiers Home raised more than $300,000 for the Women’s Wing to house homeless women veterans in historic buildings on the campus. The Soldiers Home was the last act of President Abraham Lincoln and the beginning of veteran care in our country. It is considered the model for future veteran care.

Al. Ringling Theatre

“100 Extraordinary Women was an exciting part of our campaign that raised $3,000,000 for the restoration of the Al. Ringling Theatre. We live in a small community, but 100 women joined with just a few months of work.”

Watertown Public Library

The Watertown Public Library started a campaign with the goal of finding 100 extraordinary women to help them reach their fundraising goal of $100,000. A total of 180 women pledged to their campaign—resulting in a total of $180,000 raised.

“It has been wonderful working with everyone on this… What a group of hard working dedicated women with a clear vision!“

Milton Public Library

“What began with 15 supporters quickly grew to 155 women who each pledged $1,000 for an expanded library that will serve our community for generations. Each woman’s name (or the name of someone she wants to honor or remember) will be listed in the new Children’s Storytime Area.

This was a fun and easy way to launch our capital campaign, which has now raised more than $2,500,000.”

Fine Arts Foundation of the Westby Area

“We had been trying to raise the funds for a performing arts center in our high school for fifteen years. The school district asked us to raise $750,000; if we could accomplish this they would take the idea to referendum. We began the campaign with 100 Extraordinary Women and got 122 women to pledge $122,000 in a few short months. We were amazed! This started our fundraising efforts. More than $750,000 was raised, and the referendum passed. The Performing Arts Center will be open in 2017; women in our community led the way.”

Friends of Governor Dodge State Park

“In the five years since we started our 100EW campaign have gone by quickly. Not only have we been able to build an entire equestrian campground (opened in May, 2022), but we recently finished up with the addition of a $55,000 picnic shelter. It’s amazing how much we’ve learned about grant writing and fundraising as a result of this project. The photo shows the gathering area at the campground where many 100EW bricks are incorporated. Thank you for being an inspiration and one of the many tools we needed to reach our goals!”
