IMPACT 2024 is WGC’s new five-year, $500,000 fundraising effort and focus on diversity, equity and inclusion for women in Howard County.
We are fundraising to build on our past and enhance our future by increasing our grantmaking to programs that benefit women and girls, as well as strengthening our infrastructure to grow the circle. And, we are enhancing our core values to better meet our mission by implementing a diversity, equity and inclusion lens to all of our work.
What will the WGC do?
Give More Grants: $475,000 – We will increase our ability to give larger, multi-year grants to more of our nonprofit partners that share our goals.
Strengthen Our Infrastructure: $25,000 - We will strengthen our infrastructure to build the WGC for the future.
Focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – We will enhance our core values to better enhance our mission by implementing a diversity, equity and inclusion lens throughout every aspect of the work WGC does.
How will the WGC do it?
By raising $500,000 in the next 5 years to focus on giving more grants, strengthening our infrastructure, and focusing on diversity, equity and inclusion for women in Howard County. We are seeking financial investment through 5-year pledges by at least 70 women.
We are proud to be a fund of the Community Foundation of Howard County - which means that for the last 18 years we have had the expertise of the foundation at our disposal as we’ve grown the circle. The foundation has been an important partner since our inception, and as we look to the future, our relationship will be an integral component of our exciting growth.
