Our committees involve all who care to join in a giving and learning process that makes a difference in our healthcare services and the residents of the county.
This Women’s Giving Circle is a member-driven organization that derives its strength from effectively integrating the talents, expertise, and energies of its dynamic and diverse members. The Women’s Giving Circle (WGC) is led by a chair elected every two years by the membership and a staff filled co-chair position and co-chair leads for each committee. Responsible for oversight of the WGC’s affairs and its relationship with the University of Maryland Capital Region Health Foundation (UM Capital Foundation), the WGC chair and co-chair conduct monthly with all co-chair leads of the committees.
The WGC provides an opportunity for its members to connect to each other, to the community and to the women’s healthcare initiatives they support. Joining a committee is a wonderful way to become involved in the work of the Women’s Giving Circle and to build relationships with other members.
Members of WGC can choose to serve on one or more of the following committees. Please know that we recognize that many people are not comfortable with in-person interaction so we have added a virtual component. All meetings and site visits will offer an option to participate virtually.
