Your gift helps the BWGC empower women and their families in the greater Baltimore area to achieve self-sufficiency.  

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

Make a donation to any of our four funds:

  • Grants Fund - Contribute to the work you care about by donating to BWGC's Grants Fund.  Your support of the Grant Fund increases the monies available to BWGC for making grants to Baltimore area non-profits working with women and their families to achieve self-sufficiency.

  • Operations Fund - Support the operations of our Circle. Operating funds support educational meetings, Full Circle events, grants work, and speaker series.

  • Special Gifts Fund - Make an unrestricted gift of $10,000 or more to BWGC's Special Gifts Fund to ensure BWGC's lasting support of programs benefitting women and their families and to sustain BWGC's continued existence.  BWGC maintains an oversight committee to determine when, how, and for what purpose monies in the Special Gifts Fund are used.

  • Endowment Fund - Give a legacy gift to BWGC's Endowment Fund to support BWGC's work into the future.  Ensure that work on issues important to you and to the Baltimore Women's Giving Circle will carry on for years to come by including a gift in your estate plan.  Working with you and your professional advisors, the Baltimore Community Foundation can tailor plans to fit your specific needs.  If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the Baltimore Community Foundation Development and Donor Services at 410-332-4171.
