Since our founding in 2006, Anne Arundel Women Giving Together has raised and invested over $1 million to improve the lives of women and children in Anne Arundel County!
Anne Arundel Women Giving Together (AAWGT) is a women’s giving circle with over 200 members. AAWGT is a fund of the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County. We invest — pooling our annual contributions for “collective philanthropy,” thus multiplying the power of one by many. Since 2006, AAWGT has awarded grants totaling over $1,000,000 to non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life for women and families in Anne Arundel County. Grants focus on health and welfare, education and the prevention of and treatment for violence and abuse. We inform — holding in-depth education sessions highlighting issues in our county that require active attention and support. And, we inspire — encouraging our members to engage as leaders and philanthropists in our local community.
Upcoming events our members are engaged in. We invite others to join AAWGT to participate with us.
Unsung and Unserved: The Double-Edged Sword Facing Today’s Women Veterans
Wednesday, October 17
11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Maryland Hall, Room 308, 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD 21401
An unprecedented number of women joined the military after 9/11. As the number of active duty women soldiers has soared, so has the number of women veterans. Yet progress has been agonizingly slow towards ensuring honorable recognition of female service and delivery of women’s mental and physical health care in a gender-sensitive way. As we approach Veterans’ Day, we proudly present several women who are driving changes in how America recognizes and cares for female veterans, and to hear the first-hand experience of one who has served.
