WGC Donors and Friends,
As we all know, 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year, and we have been focused on doing what we can to provide funding and support to women, girls and families in our community through our nonprofit partners on the ground. We are proud to welcome four new WGC Advisory Board members who will help to guide our efforts in the coming year. Welcome to Candace Dodson-Reed, Mireille Grangenois, Lynne Schaefer, and Nette’ Stokes.

As we enter the season of giving and look forward to Thanksgiving this year, all of us at the Women's Giving Circle want to say thank you for all you have done to be a part of our collective efforts to support our community this year. And, we are making plans for 2021.
One of the things we are planning for is our 2021 Virtual Annual Celebration - "Celebrating (S)heroes Among Us" on Monday, March 8, 2021 - International Women's Day. Our keynote speakers will discuss “Democratizing and Diversifying Philanthropy Through the Power of Collective Giving”. Hear from national philanthropic leaders Valaida Fullwood and Sara Lomelin how the landscape of philanthropy is shifting, and how collective giving is continuing to play a transformational role in bringing in many more — and more representative — women donors to the table to create more equitable communities, and make a difference through the power of giving, together.
And, we will be highlighting “(S)heroes Among Us” this year during our Annual Celebration. All women are (S)heros in their own ways - women admired for their courage and outstanding achievements. This year we will be honored to acknowledge the many ways women are supporting our community through our (S)hero Snapshots - stay tuned for how you can highlight your (S)heroes!
We are excited to offer a number of terrific sponsorship opportunities for individual women and businesses of all sizes - take a look at our online Sponsorship Center. I would love to talk to you about the chance to sponsor the WGC - please don't hesitate to contact me. Many thanks to the numerous sponsors who have already chosen to invest in our 2021 Annual Celebration! It takes a special individual or business to understand the value of investing in women and girls - thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving. Warm Regards,
Barb Van Winkle
