This is the first time Power of 100 Women will split the donations between two charities; each charity receiving $10,650. Power of 100 Women recently expanded the area for nominations for 501c3 charities, along with adding new members in the smaller communities, to a 50-mile radius of Dickinson. As a result of these changes, members voted to consider four charities at each general meeting.
