The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County is building a community of philanthropists and creating a permanent legacy to address the needs of women and girls in Howard County. We bring women together to learn about issues impacting women and girls in our community, and pool our dollars to fund programs that address those issues so we can have a greater impact together than we might otherwise have alone.
The WGC was founded in 2002 with 16 founding members. We started almost 20 years ago with multiple giving levels as we built an endowment. Today, we have hundreds of members who have given in the last 20 years, have awarded approximately $750,000 in grants to date, and have built a $1.2 M+ endowment.
Please Save the Date for March 8, 2022 for our 20th Anniversary Annual Celebration, on International Women's Day, and stay tuned for a number of opportunities to learn more about our history, our impact, our future plans, and how you can join us throughout 2022!
