It is with heavy hearts that we share with our membership the passing of Marita Tulisiak, Founder of 100+ Women Who Care Medina. Marita was surrounded in love by her devoted family when she passed on December 11, 2014.
Marita learned about 100+ Women Who Care from an article written by Regina Brett in the the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Intrigued by this unique concept of fundraising, Marita approached her friends and in a few short months, the Medina Chapter was founded in April 2011. Since that inaugural meeting, together we have raised over $108,000 for fifteen Medina County non-profit organizations.
Marita dedicated her life to social justice and giving back to her community all done quietly and with humility. Marita was a past Director of Birthcare, Medina and during her tenure, she established the first board of directors, substantially increasing emergency aid to families in crisis.
She and her beloved dog Maisie were frequent visitors to Akron Children's Hospital, local nursing homes and to the residents of Malachi House in Cleveland an agency close to her heart.
Marita's legacy and vision lives on in all of us who live and serve this community. May we honor her memory and continue to grow the legacy she began.

100+ WOMEN WHO CARE MEDINA COUNTY
We are a group of women from Medina County who are interested in supporting our community. We come from all walks of life and varying financial backgrounds.
As individuals we felt that it was a challenge to make a meaningful impact in Medina County, but as a group we feel that we have the ability to contribute to the growth of our community in ways that we never thought possible!
Our mission is to reach out and help our community by finding at least 100 or more women to contribute $100 four times a year, ($40,000+ annually) either as individuals or teams, to local charitable organizations.
All charitable organizations must be in Medina County and must have 501 (c) (3) non-profit status.
Our goal is to keep our focus local and have an impact that can be seen in our community.
This group is perfect for you if:
