Women's Collective Giving Alliance
Impact 100 Richmond is excited to be a 2016-2017 member of Women's Collective Giving Alliance (WGCN).
WGCN is a national network that links women’s collective giving grantmaking organizations to amplify the power of giving together. Representing 48 collective giving groups in 23 states, WCGN member organizations collectively have granted nearly $80 million in grants to nonprofits throughout the country.Its mission is to strengthen existing collective giving organizations and inspire the creation of new ones. Through regular, collaborative communication we build leadership in philanthropy by providing forums for sharing best practices and by offering resources about effective philanthropy and emerging trends in the field; offer support and encouragement to women building new collective giving groups in their own communities; and promote national awareness about the positive impact of collective, community-based philanthropy to increase participation and extend its benefits to more communities.
