New year, exciting plans.

As we start the new year, it is my great honor to assume the role of WGC Advisory Board Chair. I am excited to help lead the Women's Giving Circle in 2023 with WGC Vice Chair Candace Dodson-Reed, our Executive Committee, Advisory Board, and Executive Director, Buffy Beaudoin-Schwartz.

I would like to thank Barb Van Winkle for her years of leadership in the Women's Giving Circle, including the last four years as Advisory Board Chair. We are grateful that Barb will remain on our leadership team as the Immediate Past Chair, and we'll continue our strong partnership moving forward. In fact, I invite you to give to the 
Barb Van Winkle Leadership Fund in honor of her efforts, and those of WGC leaders the last 20 years!

Opportunities for involvement in 2023

Are you looking to get more involved in the WGC this year? Our team is providing numerous opportunities for you - please join us in the next few months by:

In addition to these upcoming events, we have a busy year ahead where we will:

  • Strive to engage our members in new and creative ways.
  • Continue to advance our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.
  • Build upon WGC's State of Women and Girls in Howard County to inform our grantmaking.
  • Strengthen our core support to sustain and grow our circle for the next 20 years and beyond.
I hope you will join with us.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me at any time with any thoughts, ideas, questions or concerns.

Thank you for giving to the Women's Giving Circle, where we are having a greater impact on behalf of women and girls in our community, together.

See you soon!
