GET INVOLVED  |  EVENTS  |  GIVE December 2022
I find that the holiday season is a natural time to pause and reflect upon the year that has just been completed, and as I contemplate the past year, one overwhelming feeling springs to mind—pride—the pride that is felt knowing our giving circle members and our grantees have made such a difference for so many.

For 2023, our goals are ambitious and our challenges varied and interesting, and with our focus on "Moving Forward, Stronger Together" our future accomplishments are many.

I wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
This Holiday Give the Gift of WGA Membership

Grant Applications are OPEN—Spread the Cheer!
WGA's 2023 grant application process is now open, and nonprofits are invited to apply!

Nonprofit agencies and their clients in Northeast Florida continue to be disproportionately negatively impacted by recent and persistent economic conditions. In response, the Women's Giving Alliance is offering one-year, one-time grants for agency workforce support or for client basic needs support.

The deadline to apply is 5pm on January 30, 2023.

Please share this message with your Northeast Florida nonprofit network!

Help Design "Volunteer Engagement"
You've asked for hands-on volunteer experiences at our agencies and we are responding! This is new for WGA and we need your input on what you think will work well. For example, is it one Saturday dedicated to working at 4 to 5 agencies all at the same time or do we offer 4 to 5 different days and times? Thoughts? What a great way to come alongside our agencies serving women and girls while interacting with fellow WGA members. If you are willing to give 1 ½ hours in a Zoom call sometime in January to share your opinion and help us create a great volunteer engagement experience, then please contact Barb Wenger at 904 859-4563 or
