women in need
Giving Together is a giving circle - a group of like-minded, committed women who pool funds and volunteer time to help low-income women and children in the Washington, DC area. Our members make all decisions on the allocation of funds by means of a thorough grantmaking process.
This spring, as we all tried to navigate the uncharted waters of the COVID-19 emergency, it was a challenge to find things to celebrate. But thanks to members and friends who generously contributed to GT’s emergency campaign, we're happy to report some very good news. The results are in for our first-ever online fundraiser. Our efforts were a big success, amounting to over $77,000 to help local people in need!
For the current grant cycle, members have voted to support needy women and families within the target group of immigrants and refugees. Nonprofits that provide services to this population, including assistance with resettlement, housing, education and training, and legal and administrative services may be eligible for a single-year GT grant. This grant cycle, GT will also award a two-year grant to a former grantee organization or finalist. The Grants Committee is meeting now to review the applicants.
Working with KaBOOM! - a non-profit builder of more than 2000 play spaces nationwide - we built a recreational space for the kids at John Bayne Elementary School in Capitol Heights, MD.
BUILD DAY was October 26, 2019.
