Women's Giving Circle

The Marietta Community Foundation welcomed a new companion group, The Women's Giving Circle. Formed late in 2016, the mission of the Women's Giving Circle is to build a community of philanthropists and create a permanent legacy to address the needs of women and children in Washington County, Ohio and the surrounding area. 

The purpose of the Women's Giving Circle is to educate, inspire and increase the number of women committed to philanthropy in order to strengthen the Washington County community and demonstrate the impact that can result from informed, focused grantmaking.

As with other companion groups, the Marietta Community Foundation has worked closely with the Women's Giving Circle while they establish their initial operations. Once ready, the Foundation will take a step back and allow the group to function independently while still benefiting from the Foundation's services. 

The Women's Giving Circle meets monthly through May 2018 as they complete the necessary setup for their first major project. New members are always welcome to join the ranks of this exciting new initiative.

The Giving Circle accepts grant applications for local nonprofits, volunteer and educational organizations and projects that assist women and children. Grant Applications are closed for 2018.
