"Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more."
The West Palm 100 is a not for profit, charitable organization created to provide civic and social opportunities that benefits the children, families, and neighborhoods of West Palm Beach through the donation of time, money, and people power. West Palm 100 members are invited to participate in monthly service-oriented volunteer events, and monthly socials that raise money to support charities throughout the year.
Originally founded in 2001 to provide a support network for West Palm Beach's children, families and neighborhoods, the West Palm 100 closed its doors in 2014, but not before changing the landscape of the non-profit community in West Palm Beach. Prior to winding down operations, the group had raised more than $250,000 for local organizations, as well as providing upwards of 25,000 volunteer hours in the community. Re-launched in January 2018, the group’s new leadership includes many of the original founders.
West Palm 100 members not only help contribute to the funds that make life-changing programs available to the community but can also donate time and “people power” to those in need. With the organization’s re-launch, they expect to pick up where they left off, raising money through membership dues and social events, sharing Saturdays of service, and continuing to impact the lives of thousands of children and families in our community. Non-profit organizations can apply to West Palm 100 to receive grants from money raised from membership dues; to be the beneficiary of Happy Hour event proceeds; or for support with service activities. The West Palm 100 Board of Directors will be selecting recipients for 2018. Membership in the West Palm 100 is $100 a year. Happy Hours for a Cause are scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month. Service activities and educational “Lunch and Learn” events are also being planned.
Would you like to join a group of local community minded individuals, families and businesses committed to the above mission while also enjoying monthly social activities and learning events?
