Women's Giving Collective

The Women's Giving Collective, a newly established program to help bring women of all generations together through the power of community philanthropy.

The program is in it's infancy. Through a learning journey, understanding both what and how a giving collective (circle) works, those who have provided a financial commitment, and those who are interested in knowing more about how to grow a Collective, will work together to define the purpose of the Collective in 2019. With collective input, and through education and increased awareness, we will design the program with the goal of addressing the needs of women in our community.
