Who can be a member of WGC?
A member of WGC can be any philanthropic woman seeking to support community needs in McKean County. Membership is on a yearly basis. When you commit to donating a minimum of $100 you will be deemed a member with voting privileges to determine which organizations receive a grant from the Women’s Giving Circle Fund that year. Here’s how to join!
As a member, how am I involved in WGC?
WGC members are invited and encouraged to attend our kick-off event on October 10, 2019. Details will be coming soon. Going forward, our tentative plans are to hold two each year, a spring social event, and our annual meeting held in October where you have a voice in choosing which organizations receive a grant. Both events are a wonderful gathering of area women who have an interest in supporting worthy projects in their communities. The events are fun-filled and accomplish a great purpose at the same time!
How does an organization apply for a grant?
Our first granting year will take place in the fall of 2020. The WGC awards will grant to eligible 501c3 organizations that enhance the quality of life for families in McKean County. Grant application will be available on our website by the spring of 2020 or by contacting the Foundation.
Who decides which charitable organizations receive grants?
The grants will be awarded by a competitive grant-making process, and all members can provide input. Grant recipients are voted on by our membership at our annual meeting.
