How does the WGC give?
The WGC funds are pooled in a donor-advised fund of the CCF. Funds are distributed through our member-driven grantmaking process to nonprofit organizations serving the Catholic Diocese of Richmond region.
The Women’s Giving Circle annually invites nonprofit organizations serving the Catholic Diocese of Richmond region to submit grant applications. All prospective grantees must have a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code and comply with Catholic Social Teaching. Secular nonprofit organizations must be nominated by members of the WGC. Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations whose programs and services meet the needs of our communities.
