A recent grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation will provide a 50% match for funds given at the April meeting of 100 Women Who Care-New Ulm Area.

The group received notification last week of the Foundation’s grant.

100 Women Who Care is a group of women who meet twice a year to select a charity to receive $100 from each member. Members then select finalists from among the group assembled and then vote to award the entire collection of one member.

At the time 100 Women submitted the grant request, it had $9,600 in donations to the selected charity, Tea for Cancer. The foundation will provide and addition $4,800 in September.

“We are overwhelmed with the support of 100 Women and now the Richard M. Schulze Family has shown our foundation,” said Sandy Reinke. “Tea for Cancer will use the money to support at least five additional families that are dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

The next meeting will be Sunday, October 16, at Turner Hall. Information about the organization is available at 100women-newulm.org.
