Women’s Giving Circle

WGC logo_color_HCCBuilding and strengthening Hospice & Community Care…through the power of joint contributions.

In 2004, 24 women embarked together on a philanthropic journey to create the Women’s Giving Circle for Hospice & Community Care. The Circle has grown significantly since then and has raised more than $383,000 and funded 114 projects for Hospice. This endeavor provides interested women with the unique opportunity to pool their funds and effectively invest in projects that will build and strengthen hospice-related programs through the power of joint contributions. Each member contributes $500 yearly. Women of all ages belong to the Women’s Giving Circle. They have funded or partially funded meaningful educational programs and unique services that enrich the lives of the entire community.
