OUR GRANTS IN ACTION
The Power of One … Multiplied by Many
Discuss a Book
to become better informed about needs and issues affecting our
community? The AAWGT Book Group meets six times a year, and reads
nonfiction pertinent to our mission. We convene for 90 minutes with
snacks and a glass of wine (optional) for a fascinating conversation at a
member’s home. Members are welcome to bring a guest to join us. We
select titles for the coming year in November at our annual potluck
dinner, based on member nominations that never disappoint. To learn more
or to join the group, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help Lead and Grow AAWGT Nine
standing committees are the foundation of AAWGT’s operations and serve
as the backbone for our accomplishments to date — Education and Program,
Governance, Grants, Grants Systems, Leadership Development and
Nominating, Marketing and Communication, Membership, and Post Grants
Evaluation. An ad hoc group handles web/IT matters. Join our leadership
to shape the future of our giving circle. Information on all committees
is located here.
Attend an Education Session
holds several educational sessions throughout the year. Topics have
included the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, women and leadership,
food security, and transportation.

All members are invited to this outing.
