Believing that all women are worthy, we strive to combine our gifts and talents to benefit the citizens of Greene County.
How Does the WOW Giving Circle Work?
- Each member of the Giving Circle makes an annual contribution of $120.
- Half of the contributions are awarded immediately, while the other builds an endowment to continue the Giving Circle.
- At the annual event, each member of WOW may suggest a charity to support; the member will give a short presentation on that charity’s behalf.
- All members will rank their choices, and grants will be recommended.
- That’s it, nothing to sell, and no clean-up committee! Simply “FUND” and fellowship.
- As the membership grows, so too will the grant amounts, and the impact we can make, together.
