100WOMENSTRONG EXCEEDS $4 MILLION IN CUMULATIVE  GIVING TO NONPROFITS IN SUPPORT OF SHELTER, HEALTH, HUNGER, AND EDUCATION

2023 grants of $567,000 awarded to nonprofit organizations offering services in Loudoun County

Leesburg, Va. – May 24, 2023 – 100WomenStrong announces grants of $567,000 to 46 nonprofits headquartered or providing services in Loudoun County bringing its total funding to more than $4 million since 2009.

Established in 2008 by Karen Schaufeld and 11 other founding members, 100WomenStrong gave their first two grants in 2009 for a total of $28,600.  Flash forward fifteen years and the group has grown to 66 members with $567,000 being disbursed to 46 Loudoun nonprofits in 2023 in the areas of shelter, health, hunger, and education.

“I had an epiphany one morning in the shower,” Karen Schaufeld says, “regarding the potential power of combined giving. I knew I could find others who felt passionately about making a difference right here at home and the camaraderie of being change-makers in our county would be powerful and rewarding. The more we grow the greater work we can do.”

“Although Loudoun is among the wealthiest counties in America, we still have families who are suffering from hunger, homelessness, lack of basic healthcare, and substance use disorder.  We’ve also seen a tremendous uptick in grant requests for mental health services.  In the aftermath of the pandemic and the continued stress of inflation, we hope we can grow our membership to make an even bigger impact in 2024,” says Stephanie Place, 100WomenStrong Grants Chair.
