The Women’s Giving Circle of McKean County (WGC), a project of the McKean County Community Foundation, recently held a special event at the Logyard in Kane. The women enjoyed an evening of appetizers and floral design, while helping to grow the granting monies available for distribution at their annual meeting. Local florists guided the group in creating beautiful floral bouquets and succulent garden dishes. WGC invites all area women to consider joining their group to help support many great programs that assist women and their families in McKean County!

This past year, WGC granted $7,000 to area nonprofits for their programs and projects. The 2022 awards will take place at the Annual Meeting in November, with membership for this year open until October 1. Each WGC member makes an annual charitable donation of at least $100. The donations are pooled together to make an impact in McKean County by awarding grants to non-profits. WGC is both a philanthropic and a social organization that strengthens the concept of women working together to fund change and create a better way of living in their communities.
