Women’s Giving Circle

Celebrate the special women in your life this Mother’s Day!

This Mother’s Day, the Women’s Giving Circle (WGC) has the perfect gift for all the amazing women in your life – mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends.

The Women’s Giving Circle is proud to again host the Mother’s Day Initiative, providing donors the opportunity to honor the women who have made a lasting difference in their lives, while also making a difference in the lives of women and girls in the Ohio Valley.

Gifts to the Mother’s Day Initiative and the WGC generate funding to award grants to nonprofit organizations serving the Ohio Valley . . . for generations to come.

While donors may contribute to the Women’s Giving Circle at any time, this is the organization’s only annual fundraiser. What better way to show your appreciation for all that mothers do than by supporting an organization that helps women and girls?

A beautifully designed Mother’s Day card will be sent to the honoree the week before Mother’s Day. A special option is also available to be sent “in memory of” a loved one. If the gift is made in memory of a special woman, a card will be sent to the family.

Women Empowering Women Through Philanthropy

The WGC is building a community of women philanthropists and creating a permanent legacy to address the needs of women and girls in the Upper Ohio Valley of West Virginia and Ohio. The goal is to assist women and girls achieve lifetime goals that might not otherwise be attainable without the support provided by the giving circle.

How can I participate?

Because a women’s giving circle leverages the limited resources of individuals for greater impact, minimum membership is $500 annually. Greater gifts are welcome. You may make gifts in honor or memory of a loved one or sponsor another woman’s participation. Half of each donation will be placed in the grantmaking fund and half will be placed into the endowment fund to ensure the future of the organization.
