Dear WGC Donor and Friends,
We’ve had a busy month! As we celebrate National Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we’ve had the opportunity to gather at last week’s wonderful WGC Happy Hour, and fund and host over 600 girls yesterday at Girl Power! 2018 in partnership with JHU Applied Physics Lab and the Maryland Space Roundtable. And, we are partnering again with Maryland Leadership Workshop to provide the Journey Camp for Girls this summer.
I am pleased to announce that we are also partnering with our donors to provide scholarships to Journey in memory of beloved former WGC Board Member, Cindy Hankin. Cindy was a staunch supporter of the Journey Camp for Girls. A former teacher, Cindy was beloved by her family, friends, students, and community and served as mentor, and long-time advocate for women and girls. Cindy brought a bright and wonderful spirit to the world, enriching it for all who knew her. The Women’s Giving Circle is honored to provide our Journey Scholarships in Memory of Cindy Hankin to qualifying Journey Camp applicants. Funded by Cindy’s family and friends, and WGC donors, these scholarships are provided in Cindy’s memory in perpetuity.
We value these partnerships – with our donors, our community partners, and our grantees. They are key to the WGC’s mission of building a community of philanthropists and creating a permanent legacy to address the needs of women and girls in Howard County. Speaking of permanent legacy, check out the information below regarding a new opportunity to give to the WGC – the Endow Maryland Tax Credit.
Thanks very much for your partnership and support!
Alison Canning, WGC Chair
