2023 Grants Awards

AAWGT is excited to share the results of the vote by our members to determine which nonprofits should receive 2023 grant awards. This year’s 50-member Grants Committee was challenged with the task of thoughtfully considering a record number of worthy proposals from local nonprofits. Thanks to contributions from our members (280+ currently), we were able to award grants totaling $164,305, the largest annual amount in our history. Since our founding in 2006, we have provided over $1.7M to nonprofits to help improve the quality of life for underserved women and families in Anne Arundel County.

Grantee Spotlight

We Care and Friends

We Care and Friends’ mission is to support the building blocks that create strong families and communities in areas affected by drugs, poverty, and crime in Maryland.
Founded by Larry Griffin over three decades ago, the organization provides food, clothing, and assistance to those in need. Through the assistance of Calvary United Church, they are able to provide lunches to individuals in local communities. 
We Care and Friends also sponsors speaker forums where communities get to vocalize their needs, including transportation and funds to send those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol to treatment facilities outside Maryland to get support and help.
With the grant provided by Anne Arundel Women Giving Together, they were able to assist those who may not have gotten the help needed to keep lights on, stay in their residence, and pay for child care to secure and maintain a job.
It is the goal of We Care and Friends to partner with other nonprofits to assist and be assisted to respond appropriately to the growing needs of the communities served.
