100 Extraordinary Women

Join the 100EW Initiative and be the first to support our Capital Campaign!

The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin is asking women throughout Rock County to be the first with their support – through the 100 Extraordinary Women Initiative. This is a way for women in our community to come together in support of a new facility for the animals cared for by HSSW, leading the campaign by raising the first $100,000 or more, and serving as ambassadors for HSSW and the animals it serves.

100 Extraordinary Women asks a minimum of 100 women to each donate or pledge $1,000. Pledges can be made over 5 years  ($200 per year; $18.00 per month); gifts and pledges can be made directly on the 100 Extraordinary Women website- https://www.100extraordinarywomen.com

Each woman will have her name (or the name of a woman she wants to honor or remember) permanently listed on a special plaque in the lobby of the new building.

Women can form groups for one listing, e.g. family members – mothers, grandmothers, daughters, bowling leagues, book clubs.

Men can honor or remember a woman who is important to them.

To celebrate this very special way for women to come together, we will be holding an event in early May; details are being determined by the 100EW committee. The event is complimentary for those who participate in 100 Women. There is one seat for each woman (we ask groups of women to choose one woman to represent the group).

Each woman who participates will receive a complimentary 100 Extraordinary Women gift.

We are looking for a minimum of 12 Table Captains. Each agrees to pledge and ask 7 additional women to sit at her table at the event. Table Captains will be given specific talking points and materials to use.

Although our mission is helping pets, it takes PEOPLE to make it possible. Please join us!
