The Women’s Giving Circle is building a community of philanthropists
to address the needs of women and girls in Howard County.
We have been part of the Howard County community for 22+ years, have given $1.2 M+ to our nonprofit partners through 300+ grants. We have a $1.1 M endowment from 1,700+ donors that will ensure that there are funds to support women and girls in our community in perpetuity. In 2024 we'll give at least $100K.
OUR GIVING CIRCLE
The WGC is a giving circle - a collective giving effort where we are pooling our dollars so we can have a greater impact together than we might otherwise have alone. We are proud to be among the thousands of giving circles across the country that have given millions of dollars to have an impact on a wide variety of issues.
ENJOYING 2024, TOGETHER!
- Jennifer Bodensiek, WGC Chair
"I hope our 2023 efforts were inspiring you as much as they are all of us – it fuels us to continue working together to support women and girls in our community in 2024. Perhaps, it’s needed now more than ever."
