Women's Collective Giving Grantmakers Network

About Us

Who We Are

  • We are a national network that links women’s collective giving grantmaking organizations to amplify the power of giving together. 
  • Our members represent 54 collective giving grantmaking groups in 25 states and two countries.
  • WCGN member organizations collectively have granted more than $90 million in grants to nonprofits throughout the country.
  • WCGN is a certified nonprofit corporation and has received its 501(c)3 tax-exempt status from the IRS.

What We Do

We 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. 

How We Do It

  • We offer members-only monthly educational webinars covering relevant topics in philanthropy and grantmaking.
  • We maintain a members-only website with a member directory, interactive discussion forums, and resources from our monthly programs. 
  • We sponsor national conferences hosted by a member organization to educate, offer networking opportunities, and share best practices. Past conferences have been held in Boise, ID; San Diego, CA;  Austin, TX; St. Louis, MO, and Charlotte, NC. Our next conference March 12-14, 2017 in Jacksonville, FL.

We do not make grants or direct our members' grantmaking. Nonprofit organizations looking for funding opportunities are invited to visit the websites of our member organizations.
