Impact 100 Richmond is excited to be a current member of Philanos, formerly known as the Women's Collective Giving Alliance (WGCN). Philanos affiliates vary by membership and governing models, however, they all share one guiding mission: to purposely donate financially and make a lasting impact in their local communities.
Philanos is a national network that serves to catalyze the movement of women-powered philanthropy by connecting women’s collective giving grantmaking organizations. Our members represent more than 60 collective giving grantmaking groups in 26 states, the District of Columbia and Australia.
The women of Philanos connect and empower other women who share a passion for high-impact collective giving through informed grantmaking. Philanos does not make grants or direct our members’ grantmaking. Our focus is to empower our member organizations to support nonprofit groups making transformative change in their communities.
