Each member of the Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle contributes $1,150 annually.
Of this amount, $1,000 goes for grants and $150 to support our operating expenses. All contributions are fully tax deductible. Additional gifts and net income are added directly to our annual grant pool.
Our assets are managed and invested by the Baltimore Community Foundation as a donor-advised fund. From our start in 2001, we have provided nearly $4.5 million in grants to improve life for women and their families in our region.
We operate on a calendar year. Grants are generally awarded in May or June of each year.
