Mission


The mission of the Women’s Giving Circle, a fund of the Eau Claire Community Foundation, is to raise money and distribute contributions to projects and initiatives that improve the lives of women and children in the Eau Claire area.

What is the Women's Giving Circle?


The Women’s Giving Circle is a diverse, dynamic and generous group of women engaged in an exciting venture of strategic philanthropy. It leverages the resources of individuals for greater impact by pooling members’ dollars and using the money to award grants to local non-profit organizations.

The Women’s Giving Circle, abbreviated WGC, is a fund of the Eau Claire Community Foundation. The power of collective giving allows us to amplify the impact, uniting a diverse group of effective women who are in their own right philanthropists. 50% of our annual membership donation goes to our WGC Endowment Fund to ensure the future of the organization.

Collaboration, empowerment, and learning set the tone for the Women’s Giving Circle. Women have more impact as a group than as individuals when giving and collaborating to bring about their vision for a better world. A giving circle is a great way for you and your friends to make a difference in the world – together! As a member of the Women’s Giving Circle, you will have an opportunity to:

  • Collaborate with women to make a difference
