WGC's 2021 Annual Celebration - Celebrating (S)heroes Among Us
Please join us for our 2021 Virtual Annual Celebration - "Celebrating (S)heroes Among Us" on Monday, March 8, 2021 - International Women's Day.
The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County is highlighting “(S)heroes Among Us” this year during our Annual Celebration. All women are (S)heroes in their own ways - women admired for their courage and outstanding achievements.
This year, we are proud to feature five (S)heroes Among Us who have led critical efforts on behalf of organizations that we have funded this year through our Emergency Response Network, who are focusing on widespread community needs affecting women, their families, and the broader community:
Please join us in thanking these (S)heroes for their efforts, and in highlighting every day (S)heroes Among Us, by uploading a photo of YOUR Howard County (S)heroes on our WGC (S)heroes Among Us Virtual Mosaic Wall. With your help, we are highlighting women across the county before, during and after our March 8, 2021 Annual Celebration!
One way that women are supporting communities is through collective giving - or giving circles. 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.
