Success Stories

“On an evening back in June, this small yet powerful group of women gathered together at The Architect and after a couple of hours of laughter, cocktails and meaningful moments, 3 Irish Jewels Farm left the building with over 100 new friends and $15,000 richer.

Thanks to this group’s generosity, we have hired our first full-time employee and Director of Programs, Andrea Rasmussen… Andrea has been working with us part-time for almost 2 years now, and 3IJF wouldn’t be where it is today without her. Additionally, we expanded our Camp Bluebird programs for children with autism and — in addition to our track-out programs for year-round calendar students — we now have summer camps for children on the traditional school calendar, and track-out camps for children on the modified year-round calendar. Also, we will be kick-starting our social clubs for teens and adults over the next few months.

So to say that we appreciate all of these women is an understatement. Thank you for supporting our mission — and for helping to make dreams come true for our local families involved with autism.”

“The generosity of the 100 women has profoundly impacted our organization in enabling us to serve the most at-risk girls in our community by providing transportation services. In particular, one young woman would not have had the resources she needed during her transition from an abusive household to foster care without your gift. Your investment has truly changed the trajectory of her life. Thank you.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to be the recipient of 100 Women Who Give a Hoot inaugural grant-making gift. The collective impact this organization will have on non-profits such as The Hope Center is quite powerful. The grant money goes directly to the programs and services we provide young people who are aging out of foster care — programs that provide these incredibly at risk young people with the skills and knowledge they need to make that transition to adulthood as they continue to do the hard work of growing up. “
