Read More About Our Grantees

Anne Arundel Women Giving Together is a volunteer-run entity, guided by its Steering Committee consisting of Officers and Committee Leadership (see link at left). Operating under the auspices of the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, Anne Arundel Women Giving Together was created by a group of 15 founding members, consisting of women philanthropists and community leaders and in 2020 celebrated 14 years of giving together.

Education Programs

Each year, AAWGT conducts member education programs, a Grants Showcase featuring AAWGT grantees, site visits to grantees, volunteer activities, an annual retreat, membership outreach events (see Calendar of Events) and a Grants program that includes a rigorous grants review process and follow-up evaluation of all grantees. 

Member Participation

AAWGT encourages members to join one of our committees to participate more fully. Our committees welcome additional members: it is a great way to get involved, contribute your expertise, and build relationships with other members. Most committees meet once a month. Volunteer Opportunities
