The Washington County Women’s Giving Circle (WGC) held their Nonprofit Speed Dating event on October 11 at the Betsy Mills Club in downtown Marietta. The purpose of the event was to allow local nonprofit organizations the opportunity to introduce themselves and share with members of the WGC their needs to help the community.
Representatives from each organization had nearly ten minutes to detail their proposals at six different stations. Following the event, the WGC selected one organization to receive a $250 mini-grant, donated by the Marietta Community Foundation. The nonprofit organizations participating included the Betsy Mills, Boys & Girls Club, GoPacks, O’Neill Senior Center, Salvation Army, and the Washington County Health Dept.
Formed in late 2016, the Women’s Giving Circle seeks to educate, inspire and increase the number of women committed to philanthropy in order to strengthen Washington County. The Women’s Giving Circle accepts grant applications for local nonprofits, volunteer and educational organizations, and projects that assist women and children in the area. Applications for the next grant cycle are due January 8, 2019.
