100 Women Who Care Albany Selects Sidewalk Warriors – Troy to Receive More Than $22,000
Sidewalk Warriors – Troy was nominated and selected as the quarterly nonprofit to receive more than $22,000 from 100 Women Who Care Albany.
100 Women Who Care Albany is a group of more than 220 Albany area women who come together four times a year to pool their resources and contribute to worthy local nonprofits. Each member pledges to donate $400 annually to support nonprofits throughout the year. Each quarter, they hear pitches from fellow members regarding organizations that could use the funds. After a vote, one nonprofit is selected to receive every single donation from all the members. The Albany chapter will soon have supported nonprofits with more than $500,000 in total raised funds.

In addition to the quarterly donations, 100 Women Who Care Albany has donated even more money through a partnership with the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, a nonprofit created by the founder and chairman of the national electronics retailer Best Buy. Sidewalk Warriors – Troy will also receive additional funds through this partnership.
