Our Women’s Giving Circle Annual Membership Meeting was held in 2020!
OUR FIRST GRANTING YEAR!
WGC awarded their inaugural grants totaling $9,500 during the organization’s first Annual Membership event held virtually in November via Zoom. Door prizes were awarded throughout the 30-minute program. As part of the event, the organization’s 75 members had an opportunity to vote for the projects they felt were most important to the community. Voting was conducted via mail, email and fax this year, due to the constraints of a face to face event. After the votes were tallied, five agencies received grant awards.
