One Hundred+ People for Perry’s mission is to invest in Perry’s future through supporting current charities/non-profits/worthy projects which advance the quality of life.


After 18 meetings, the group has pledged $125,800 to local non-profit projects.


The goal of 100+ People for Perry is to make four large donations each year, which will impact our community.


Each contribution is to stay 100 percent in the community; no national charities will be considered.


Each charity/nonprofit/worthy cause must be a 501 (c)(3) or sponsored by a 501 (c)(3), be project based, and benefit the Perry community.


Non-profit organizations may be found at https://www.guidestar.org/NonprofitDirectory.aspx


The next 100+ People for Perry meeting will be at 7 p.m. (6:30 p.m. social time) on Monday, Aug. 24, 2020 at La Poste, 1219 Warford St. in Perry.
