If you enjoy drinking beer and doing good simultaneously, these two Fort Worth organizations could be for you.

100 Men (sometimes also referred to as 100 Men Who Give A Damn) and 100 Women Who Care are community organizations that work to financially support local nonprofits.

The groups meet quarterly, typically at HopFusion Ale Works or Rahr and Sons Brewery, and each member brings $100 as a donation.

At the meetings, three nonprofits from across Fort Worth and Tarrant County present their causes and operating models, and the attendees vote on the most deserving. The winning nonprofit receives $10,000 ($100 per person from each of the 100 attendees).

Following a concept that originated in Toronto, the Fort Worth men’s version debuted in 2016 and the women’s group followed a year later as the brainchild of local entrepreneur Leslie Ford.

The 100 Men met this past week at HopFusion and saw presentations from Educational Scholarships for Single Parents and Brotherhood for the Fallen. The former received the funds.

The organizations have previously supported:

“I will never forget my night with this organization,” noted Yolanda Carson, a founder of When Jade Smiles. “We were able to help so many grieving children with the money raised from that group. It is incredible to witness.”
The 100 Women Who Care haven’t met in 2024 yet, but are planning an event over the summer. Stay tuned for details. 100 Men will meet again on Tuesday, Aug. 13 at 6 p.m. at HopFusion. Keep an eye on the websites, Facebook pages + our Events calendar for future dates.

There are no membership fees except for the $100 at the meetings. All you need to do is show up.
