Our Impact: Invest, Inform, Inspire

We INVEST— pooling our annual contributions for “collective philanthropy,” thus multiplying the power of one by many. Grants focus on health and welfare, education and the prevention and treatment for violence and abuse.

We INFORM — holding in-depth education sessions highlighting issues in our county that require active attention and support.

We INSPIRE — encouraging our members to engage as leaders and philanthropists in our local community.

AAWGT Commitment to DEIA

AAWGT continues to apply the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) as we uphold our mission of collective giving. Our DEIA Committee interacts regularly with all other committees. We have instituted three new membership levels to encourage more women to join us. Our grants process is continually measured against best practices in Trust-Based Philanthropy. And, our Racial Equity Study Group, which spearheaded many of these changes, is beginning its 5th year of monthly meetings and is open to all members. Learn more by clicking HERE.
