Grants Update: Emergency Response Network

Grants Update: Emergency Response Network

The WGC Emergency Response Network was created to provide an opportunity for WGC donors to help women in need. When our nonprofit partners are working with a woman with an immediate need, they submit a request to the WGC ERN.

We enhanced the ERN in the Summer of 2018. Since that time have sent 7 WGC ERN requests to our donor base, and have received donations totaling $5,500. 

Emergency Response Network Requests:

  • Come from one of our pre-determined nonprofit partners.
  • Are for immediate needs up to $1,000.
  • Provide assistance to women and girls in Howard County.

Thank you for your support of women and girls in our community through the WGC’s Emergency Response Network (ERN). We are making a bigger difference together than we might otherwise be able to alone – the reason for the success of our giving circle!
