Women's Giving Circle looking for new members
Friday, December 07, 2012 10:00 AM
Jefferson County offers many ways for individuals and organizations to put their money to work for good causes.
The Jefferson County Community Foundation is one avenue many use. Now, the Foundation is working with a new group - the Women's Giving Circle - to distribute funds to those with needs.
The Foundation hopes to distribute about $15,000 in grants next March.
The Women's Giving Circle had a modest beginning with 12 women in March. Now the group has grown to more than 170 members whose goal is to help women and children in the community.
The group is concentrating on four areas: education, physical and mental health, economic improvement and violence and crime against women and children.
Those areas would top anyone's list of important issues that need attention in any community.
A membership in the Women's Giving Circle is $100. Seventy-five percent goes into the annual grant program, while the remaining $25 goes into a permanent endowment fund through the Community Foundation.
Each member of the Women's Giving Circle gets a vote on how the money will be doled out. The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. Dec. 28.
Those interested in an applying can find an application on the Community Foundation Website at www.cfmjc.org.
