100 Women Who Care donate to Thillen Education Foundation

Updated: Apr 29

The Lake Country chapter of 100 Women Who Care recently presented its quarterly donation of $10,000 to the Dave Thillen Education Foundation. The Thillen Foundation partners with the Greene County College and Career Academy (GCCA) in pursuit of a shared goal of ending generational poverty in Greene County.

GCCA prepares students for college admission or provides career training for direct entry into the workforce or military service. The career coaching program involves 130 volunteer career coaches who commit to work with 450 enrolled students over four years. It also offers students an opportunity to earn financial assistance following graduation as they move on to college, careers or the military.

100 Women Who Care is a nationwide organization in which each chapter meets quarterly to nominate, vote upon, and support local nonprofits with $100 individual member contributions each time, resulting in donations up to $10,000 or more based on membership rolls.
