The annual grants are made possible by the membership of the Women’s Giving Circle. The Women’s Giving Circle is a group of philanthropic-minded women of all ages, means and backgrounds who combine their financial strength to make a positive change for the women and children throughout Jefferson County. The Women’s Giving Circle began in 2012 and has awarded nearly $185,000 back into the community since its creation

Annual membership (January 1 to December 31 of the calendar year) to the Women’s Giving Circle is open to any woman in Jefferson County and requires only a $100 tax-deductible contribution. Junior memberships are $50 and open to girls ages 18 and under. Of the $100 annual donation, $75 goes in a fund for immediate granting and $25 is placed in an endowment fund for future granting. The junior membership is split $25/$25.

Assets of the Women’s Giving Circle are held and maintained at the Community Foundation of Madison and Jefferson County (CFMJC). Established in 1991 by a group of local volunteers, CFMJC fulfills the mission of building a strong, vibrant community by helping donors provide perpetual funding for the people, projects, and passions of Jefferson County.
