The concept is simple. One hundred women meet quarterly and select a charity in their community to receive their donation. Each woman gives $100. Combined, a significant donation is given to the chosen charity, and the result is the “Power of 100”. There are over 400 Power of 100 – Women Who Care giving circles across the country. Our founder identified them as a unique philanthropic partner that offers a way to give back to the many communities that made Best Buy the world’s #1 electronics retailer. The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation (RMSFF) provides a 50% match to charities chosen by invited giving circles.
To date, we have invested over $3.5 million to these charities.
