The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County (WGC) would like to express our sincere appreciation to all 31 inspirational women who participated in our “Our Giving, Our Stories” philanthropist profile series in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month 2021.
The WGC is proud to be a financial supporter of National Black Philanthropy Month (BPM), 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.
Starting on August 1 and each day in August thereafter, the WGC has shared daily profiles of Howard County philanthropists in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month.
We have enjoyed highlighting 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.
“I am thrilled to have 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’m excited to have elevated the voices of women in our community who give back in so many ways.”
We hope you enjoy the inspirational stories of these 31 Howard County philanthropists in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month 2021. Double click on each image to read the full profile!
