How it works
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE INVITED TO JOIN THE WOMEN'S GIVING CIRCLE OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY
There are two (2) types of membership:
Regular member: This member is asked to pledge an annual commitment of $550 for a minimum of three years. The $550 annual gift is used as follows: $400 is immediately placed in the grant-making fund; $100 is placed in the endowment; and $50 is added to the circle’s operating expense fund. After the three (3) year commitment, we invite members to continue paying their dues annually to support the grantmaking and work of the Women’s Giving Circle.

The Women’s Giving Circle has five (5) committees that any member can elect to join: Evaluation, Events, Grants, Marketing, and Membership. All members are invited to be as involved as they wish; we have no member participation requirements or time constraints. Every member votes on proposed grants.
