WGC Donors and Friends,
2019 was a year of impact and meaning ... and it’s because of you.
We brought people together with common interests to learn about issues impacting our community and to fund programs that benefit women and girls in Howard County.
How did we do this?
By giving grants to nonprofits in Howard County that focus on our mission to empower women and girls - over $46k to 13 organizations!
By raising money from donors who want to support our grantmaking and invest in our endowment, so that we have money in perpetuity to fund programs that benefit women and girls - over $80k from 350+ donors, including our newly-launched Impact 2024 Campaign, and a $940k endowment!
By hosting events and programs to engage donors and raise money to support our grantmaking - 6 social, educational and networking gatherings engaging hundreds of women!
As we countdown the days to the New Year, we look at 18 ways we made a difference together this year - take a look!
As part of the Howard County community for over 18 years, we have raised over $1 million to support our efforts from over 1,000 donors, and have given over 100 grants to nonprofits that support women and girls in our community.
And we’ve done all this together – as a Giving Circle. It takes all of us investing our time, talent, and financial resources in various ways to ensure we are having an impact. We hope our 2019 efforts have inspired you as much as it has all of us – it fuels us to continue working together to support women and girls in our community as we look to 2020.
Perhaps, it’s needed now more than ever.
Please give a year-end gift to the WGC this giving season – we can’t do it without you.
