The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County is raising critical resources to give to nonprofits on the frontlines of responding to the COVID-19 urgent health and economic needs of disproportionately impacted communities in Howard County.
To meet the unprecedented need, WGC has broadened the scope of our grantmaking and Emergency Response Network at this critical time to stay nimble and flexible in order to be as responsive as possible to growing community needs.
WGC is funding nonprofit partners that are focused on basic needs: child care, food, housing, health care and mental health services, as well as our local health care system and frontline health care workers.
Donors can double all donations to the WGC COVID-19 fund through the generosity of Cyndi and Ron Gula, who are matching donations dollar for dollar up to $25,000 to address unprecedented COVID-19 community needs.
“We know the needs are great, and we are proud to be part of a community of donors and funders that are stepping up to show support in these trying times” said Barb Van Winkle, chair of the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County.
“We are in this together, will support women, girls and their families together, and will get through this unprecedented crisis, together."
