Join Us to Create Change through the Women’s Giving Circle

The Cadillac Area Women’s Giving Circle is a network of women with a shared passion— they make a difference, they give back, and they want to create real change in issues that affect the quality of life for women and girls.

The Giving Circle pools the charitable gifts of our members into the Cadillac Area Women’s Giving Circle Fund, leveraging the power of every dollar to create real and sustainable change by funding programs and services that address issues of safety, health, and equality for women and girls in the Cadillac area.  Since August 2009, the Circle has awarded over $140,000 in grants.

Your Foundation is the partner of the Giving Circle in this work. The Cadillac Area Women’s Giving Circle is a Fund of the Cadillac Area Community Foundation.  The Women’s Giving Circle established their Fund at the Community Foundation because of our shared values, and the opportunity to create synergy in addressing issues that make a difference in the lives of women and girls in the Cadillac area.

I invite you to learn more about the Women’s Giving Circle and their work at http://www.cadillacareawomensgivingcircle.org

Next year the Cadillac Area Women’s Giving Circle will celebrate their 10 Year Anniversary.  Their goal remains unchanged; they share a common philanthropic goal to benefit the needs of area women and girls.  In addition to a full annual meeting, the ladies meet monthly at a local restaurant to share a meal and discuss the issues facing area women and girls.

You have an opportunity to join the Cadillac Area Women’s Giving Circle; they are currently accepting new members.    Membership is $500 per year.  $450 of your membership is awarded in the form of grants to the community.  $50 is placed in the endowed portion of the Cadillac Area Women’s Giving Circle Fund.
