3 Questions With ... Antonia Watts in Celebration of Black Philanthropy Month - WGC's Our Giving, Our Stories - 8/27
WGC's 2022 "Our Giving, Our Stories" Series in Celebration of Black Philanthropy Month
The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County is proud to continue our support for Black Philanthropy Month (BPM), 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 WGC is doing this is through WGC's "Our Giving, Our Stories!" daily profile Series each August. Each day this month we are sharing daily profiles of incredible women in our community who are giving in so many ways - in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month.
Today, we elevate the voice and story of philanthropist Antonia Watts:
What moves you to give your time, talent and financial resources?
I believe in the power of change through service.
When did you start giving to issues that are important to you?
I started volunteering in college when I realized the impact that my time could have on an important issue.
What advice do you have for those interested in giving back?
Start local and start small. Local issues have the greatest impact on our day to day life. Start by writing emails to local representatives about issues impacting your community. Start by donating small amounts to those who care about issues that matter to you most.
Where do you focus your time, talent, and treasure?
