The Women’s Giving Circle of McKean County (WGC), a project of the McKean County Community Foundation, extends an invitation to all McKean County women to join them at their annual meeting on Wednesday, November 16 beginning at 6 p.m. This year’s event will be held at the Bradford Brew Station where $7,300 in grants will be awarded to non-profit organizations.
Women’s Giving Circle is a relatively young organization that was formed to encourage philanthropy among women in McKean County. An affordable membership offers the opportunity for community-minded women to make a huge difference, with a small investment. A yearly donation of a minimum of $100 gives a member voting privileges as well as participation in two yearly events with many amazing women in our communities. Non-profits are invited to submit grant applications on an annual basis, with grants awarded at the annual meeting from the pooled donations of all of the WGC members.
The goal of WGC is to grow its membership and its granting capacity each year. Those interested in this community effort to make a difference in their own hometowns are invited to attend the fall meeting to see what WGC is all about. Appetizers will be served, short presentations will be made by grant applicants to explain their projects, basket raffles will be held, and members and guests will enjoy social time to greet and meet other women in attendance.
Please join WGC for an enjoyable evening. Registration is due by November 2. Register online at www.mckeancountyfoundation.org/events or call the McKean County Community Foundation at 1.844.238.2289.
