Join the Catonsville Women's Giving Circle!
If you were a 2015 member and haven't paid your $260 tax-deductible dues yet, we encourage you to do it now. Grant applications will soon be coming in and we want to support as many organizations serving our community as possible. Click here to join!
Matching Gift Program: We also encourage you to check with your employer to see if they participate. One of our members did last year, and the CWGC received an additional $260 because of it!
Catonsville Women's Giving Circle
We are building a dynamic community of philanthropic women who will have a strong, positive, collective impact on the greater Catonsville area by providing funding to a variety of charitable organizations and programs.
We look forward to sharing news of activities that support our community--those that we organize for members and their friends as well as those benefiting our grantees and the community at-large. One of our primary goals this year is to have more face-to-face chances for all of us to engage. We want a mix of informative presentations on issues that matter and events on the social, just-for-fun side, as well.
It is our pleasure to introduce this year's new co-convener, Linda Lombardo, who has been a member since 2013. Linda first came to know of us through her role as retired executive director of Lighthouse, a local nonprofit that the CWGC has supported. With her longtime experience in the nonprofit world and engagement in the Catonsville community, Linda will be invaluable in shaping the direction of the CWGC as we enter this, our fifth giving cycle.
Check out our Community Needs Blog where you will find volunteer opportunities with Catonsville Women's Giving Circle grantees. It's one more way we are "giving to grow a stronger community."
