Women Giving Together
In 2011, two local women formed Women Giving Together (WGT), a giving circle to support some of the unfilled needs in Delaware County. Since then, WGT has provided grants to local charitable organizations totaling more than $420,000
WGT is made up of women who live or work in Delaware County who pool their donations (individual $1,100) and collectively decide where to grant their dollars in an enjoyable, inclusive, and social atmosphere. By combining funds, the group makes a far greater impact than with smaller, individual donations.
WGT is a Donor-Advised Fund of the Delaware County Foundation. For more information, please contact us at (614) 764-2332.
