Our Mission

"Through collective giving and collaboration, The Baltimore Women's Giving Circle seeks to empower women and their families in the greater Baltimore area to achieve self-sufficiency."

The Giving Circle encourages members to participate in philanthropy through grant-making, education, advocacy and other community-based activities.

The Baltimore Women's Giving Circle brings together women with a common goal: to support opportunities for women and their families in Greater Baltimore.

By leveraging our collective resources, we support positive change through the power of grant-making.

Our education programs increase our awareness of the consequences of disparities in healthcare, employment, education, housing, and offer potential solutions.

We carry out our mission through committees. 

Each member contributes $1,150 yearly to the Giving Circle, a fund of the Baltimore Community Foundation, from which we have awarded more than $6.8 million since 2001 to community organizations. 

Our partnerships over the years have supported over 185 organizations that are dedicated to the well-being of women, children, and families in our community.
