WGC Donors and Friends,
August is Black Philanthropy Month, which is a global celebration and concerted campaign to elevate Black philanthropic leadership around the world - and the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County is excited to support it again this year as a financial sponsor, and locally in two ways:
First, tomorrow we launch our daily WGC’s “Our Giving, Our Stories!” Daily Profile Series throughout the month of August. Chaired by long-time WGC supporter and former Advisory Board member Malynda Madzel, I hope you'll follow along on our social media pages and our website to read about these inspirational philanthropists in our community!
And, we are hosting WGC's "Our Giving, Our Stories!" Virtual Happy Hour this coming Monday, August 3 at 6:00 pm, where we will celebrate our profile series and discuss women's giving in our county. Hosted by long-time WGC supporter Candace Dodson Reed, with featured speakers Jackie Hrabowski and Cynthia Bell, this will be a wonderful way to celebrate Black Philanthropy Month together - register here today!
Read on below to learn more about WGC's Black Philanthropy Month efforts, including us having a chance to discuss on the Elevate Maryland Podcast at 2 pm - tune in! And, make sure you read our latest WGC Her Mind Magazine columns that discuss Black Philanthropy Month, and our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts.
There's lots going on during the hot, hazy days of summer - please join with us and learn more about these incredible, dynamic philanthropists in our community!
