Give the gift to the BWGC and you'll have a powerful ripple effect of change. Your generous gift will advance the BWGC's mission to improve the self-sufficiency of women and children in the Greater Baltimore area.

There are a number of ways to support our work today and years to come.

Make a Donation to any of the three different funds:

1. Grants Fund - Donate to the BWGC Grants Pool to increase the amount of monies available for grant making.  Contribute to work you care about, remember a loved one, honor family and friends.  Please see the link for online gifts below or if you prefer, make a donation by check. 

2. Special Gifts Fund - Donate to a fund for unrestricted gifts of $10,000 and over. An oversight committee exists to guarantee how, when, and for what purpose these gifts will be used to ensure lasting support of programs benefitting women and children and the future of the Circle.  At this time, we only have the option for the donation by check or stock. 

3. Endowment Fund - Make a legacy gift to ensure that work on issues important to you and the Circle will carry on for years to come. Support the work of the Circle into the future. At this time we only have the option for the donation by check or stock.
