Women's Collective Giving Grantmakers Network

WCGN Programs

WCGN holds interactive, educational programs covering topics such as creating a vibrant membership, strategic planning, and innovations in grantmaking. The WCGN Board plans and organizes programs, which feature leaders from our member organizations and occasionally outside experts. 

Monthly educational webinars for members are offered on the second Tuesday of every month (except June, July, August, and December, as well as during conference months) from 9-10 a.m. PST / noon-1 p.m. EST via webinar. We record webinars for access after the event. Registration is required to view both live and past webinars.  

Conferences, which are open to anyone interested in learning more about collective giving, are hosted by a member organization in coordination with the WCGN Board and take place every 18 months. WCGN's next conference is October 21-23, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA, hosted by Impact100 Philadelphia

Sharing best practices provides rich opportunities for learning and leadership development for our members. Archived materials from all of our varied programs are always available on our members-only pages, including information from our successful 6th National Leadership Forum hosted by Women's Giving Alliance (Jacksonville, FL) in March 2017.

Access to programs, presentation materials, and archived materials is available only to WCGN members. 
Contact us if you are a member of a WCGN Member Organization and do not have a WCGN log on.
