Dear WGC Donors and Friends,
As we wrap up the first half of the year, I am grateful for all we've done together to support women and girls!

We had a great time celebrating philanthropy in our county two weeks ago at the Community Foundation of Howard County's Spring Party -we are proud to be a fund of the Community Foundation!
We also had a great time last weekend volunteering and helping to support the Girls on the Run 5K!
Great news - we have a few spots that have opened up for the upcoming Journey Camp for Girls. Please help spread the word if you know any rising rising 7th, 8th, and 9th grade girls who may be interested in attending July 14-July 30. Additional information is below!
And, it's back! We are currently accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Young Women's Giving Circle (YWGC), which is sponsored by the WGC. The group is composed of girls in 7th - 12th grade who share the same passion: helping women and girls in need.
I hope to see you at some of our upcoming activities:
- June 30: Join us for a viewing and discussion of Girl Rising to salute the founding of the Columbia Film Society and HoCoPoLitSo - we are sponsoring an afternoon that celebrates the education of girls, the beauty of story, and the power of collective action.
- October 14: Save the Date for WGC's Annual Celebration with Keynote Speakers: Howard County's first female Police Chief, Lisa Myers and first female Fire Chief, Christine Uhlhorn at Howard Community College, Horowitz Center - stay tuned for more information!
Thank you for your support of the WGC! We are committed to growing a community of empowered philanthropists that are building on the past, and working today to shape the future for women and girls through the power of collective giving.
I look forward to seeing many of you soon!
Barb Van Winkle, WGC Chair
