The Women’s Giving Circle Invites the Community to its Spring Gathering
Come join members of the Women’s Giving Circle for their Annual Spring Gathering! This year’s Gathering will take place on May 1, 2017, from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at the Eau Claire Golf and Country Club (828 Club View Lane, Altoona, WI.) The Spring Gathering offers a great opportunity to meet members of the Women’s Giving Circle, learn about their mission, and hear from the organizations that have received WGC grants.
The WGC, a fund of the Eau Claire Community Foundation, was founded in 2007. Its more than 200 members use the power of collective giving by pooling their donations to fund grants to nonprofit organizations that work to enhance the well-being of women and children in our community. The impact of each $250 dues contribution is considerable: Together, the WGC members have distributed over $186,000 in grants. The WGC is open to everyone who wants to become a member, female or male, and there’s currently a special $150 dues rate for members between the ages of 22 and 39.
