A New Color of Giving: The Emergence of Women-Led Giving Circles
March 3, 2021 at 10 AM - 11:30 AM CT
On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, we hosted the webinar A New Color of Giving: The Emergence of Women-Led Giving Circles. Communities of color have always been philanthropic and giving circles are an expression of a rich history rooted in a tradition of support. Watch to this webinar to learn from the leaders of four giving circles led by women of color to learn more about how this opportunity can mobilize new audiences and make an impact in your community. Participants will learn more about the history of giving in communities of color as well as hear from a panel that will share details on their partnership with Texas Women's Foundation, recruitment of members and fundraising, and the selection of community organizations through the process.
