Celebrating International Women's Day!

"I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life" – Maya Angelou

Dear WGC Friends and Supporters,

We strive to bring 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 do we do this?
  • By giving grants to nonprofits in Howard County that focus on our mission.
  • By raising money from donors to support our grantmaking and having an endowment so that we will have money in perpetuity to fund programs that benefit women and girls, and
  • By hosting events and programs to engage donors and raise money to support our grantmaking.
We’ve been part of the Howard County community for 18+ years, 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.

And, during this Women's History Month - and today - as we celebrate International Women's Day, we are proud to sponsor this great event!

VISIONARY WOMEN – March 8-31, 2019
Gala Reception: Friday, March 8, 6-8:30 pm * today!
