Our Mission

Through collective giving and collaboration, the Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle supports organizations that advance opportunities for women and their families in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. Circle members participate in grantmaking, education, and community engagement.


The Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle contributes to a more just, equitable, and inclusive Baltimore where all women can flourish.

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. 

We offer a three-tiered membership plan of $2500, $1200, and $600 in addition to several payment options. You may select the membership plan that is personally meaningful and aligns with your philanthropic goals. Each member contributes 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.
