WGC's "Our Giving, Our Stories!" Daily Profile Series
The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County was proud to continue our support for Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) 2020, which is observed every August. The primary aims of BPM are informing, involving, inspiring and investing in Black philanthropic leadership to strengthen African-American and African-descent giving in all its forms, for the benefit of our planet, our communities, our organizations and our lives.
One way we did this is through WGC's "Our Giving, Our Stories!" Daily Profile Series:
Beginning on Saturday, August 1 and each day in August thereafter, the WGC shared daily profiles of Howard County philanthropists in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month. We highlighted these inspirational stories of women in our community, who discussed what moves them to give their time, talent and financial resources, when they started giving to issues that are important to them, and what advice they have for those interested in giving back.
The WGC posted daily on social media and on our website, which can still be accessed by the public in order to learn more about these inspirational philanthropists! www.womensgivingcircle.org
“I was thrilled to lead the WGC’s “Our Giving, Our Stories!” Profile effort for Black Philanthropy Month” said Malynda Madzel, philanthropist and former WGC Advisory Board Member. “As a long-time supporter of the WGC, I was so excited to elevate the voices of women in our community who give back in so many ways.”
