100 Extraordinary Women

For Every Child


Please join Extraordinary Women throughout Kenosha in the “For Every Child” capital campaign to build a children’s library on the first floor of the new affordable housing project - Uptown Lofts. This project is on the site of one of our community’s worst tragedies – a unique opportunity for learning and healing. Only 36% of our community’s third graders read at a third-grade level, so this library will benefit all of Kenosha’s children.


How it Works

  • Participants in the 100EW campaign give $1,000 with an option to pledge over 5 years. This is $200 per year or approximately $18 per month. Participants can give in their own name or they can give in honor or memory of another woman.
  • Everyone is welcome to give! You don't have to be a woman to participate. Anyone can give in the honor or memory of a woman who is important to them.
  • Extraordinary Women can donate or pledge individually; groups can also give to one listing, e.g. family members, bowling leagues, and book clubs. Groups that pledge $1,000 will have a listing in the group’s name (e.g. The Smith Sisters) or in one woman's name (e.g. In Honor of Daisy Smith).
  • To celebrate this very special way for women to come together, we will be inviting all of our donors to special opening events. Each $1,000 pledge provides one seat. Groups may choose a representative to attend the event. Details will be available soon.
