Anne Arundel Women Giving Together (AAWGT) is a collective giving circle with the mission of improving the quality of life for women and families living in Anne Arundel County. Since its founding in 2006, AAWGT has awarded over $1.5 million in grants to 47 nonprofit organizations.
AAWGT’s 260 members are engaged citizens. We serve on boards, donate hundreds of volunteer hours, and financially support the many nonprofit organizations serving our most vulnerable citizens. And, as a women-only philanthropic organization sponsored by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, we aim to educate not only our membership but also the general public with year-round informational programs led by nonprofit experts that focus on the most critical needs of our County’s families.
Each year, our membership grows. We have become an important “go to” organization that attracts as members community leaders, retired professionals, new residents and – in a new initiative this year – we have now expanded our membership fees to encourage participation from younger women and those working in our nonprofit sector.
Each year, we reach out to businesses and organizations, seeking sponsorship support to help underwrite the basic infrastructure costs of our all-volunteer organization. AAWGT's administrative costs include fees for our website and grants module, event costs for member and community meetings, and an annual management fee charged by the Community Foundation, totaling about $30K per year. With sponsorship support, more monies are freed up for AAWGT’s grants to area organizations. The benefits of the various sponsorship levels are spelled out on the attached form.
By becoming an AAWGT sponsor, your company or organization is featured in front of our 260 members and the 2,000+ community members who regularly receive our communications and participate in our year-round informational sessions and grants program. Plus, you identify yourself as aligned with our mission of helping women and families who are in need in our area.
