Janine Fernandes-Hayden is one member of the original organizing team of 100+ Women Who Care Salt Spring Island. We connect on this episode of The Public Circle Podcast to discuss the impact of their fundraising for non-profit organizations on Salt Spring.
Originally from Victoria, Janine is now an established 15-year resident of the Island and is the acting Executive Director of Salt Spring Women Opposed to Violence and Abuse (SWOVA).
100+ Women organizations bring like-minded women together to raise funds for their communities. In this podcast, we chat about how the fundraising model works and how the work of these women benefits the community, creates connections and strengthens networks.
The Salt Spring chapter is one of more than a dozen chapters on Vancouver Island including one on the Saanich Peninsula. They raised $17,000 for the Salt Spring Therapeutic Riding Association in March 2019 and $12,900 for the Salt Spring Seniors Service Society in November 2018.
