Welcome to our new girlfriends!

Hello to all the new 2017 members. Together we are making a big difference in our four-county region! You are now part of a national movement of women's collective giving circles. We are women who have come together to make a difference at the the local level.  In 2016 we had 117 members. In 2017 we now have 253 members. That means we are able to make grants totaling $253,000 this year. We are committed to making meaningful grants of $100,000 so organizations can do impactful work in our community. Make sure to read all the web pages on our regular site, and if you missed our new member orientation, below is information that most members ask about.
