Women’s Giving Circle Announces Grants

The Women’s Giving Circle held its Annual Grants Reception at downtown Gainesville’s Blue Water Bay on May 16, announcing plans to give more than $50,000. This year’s General Grant Awards were presented to Big Brothers Big Sisters to ensure continued services to the 50 girls through the summer months; Girls Place Summer Camp to offer sliding scale financial assistance for girls in middle school and high school; Meridian Behavioral Health Care to help expand the Meridian Transitional Jobs Program; Partnership for Strong Families to support Project Job Makeover and assist up to 15 women; and Take Stock in Children to purchase a Florida Pre-Paid two-year scholarship that will benefit the class of 2018.

Focus Grant Awards were given to Catholic Charities to continue support for the Individual Development Account program for women and Peaceful Paths to continue support for their current IDA program and launch a micro-loan component.

During the past six years, the Circle has given almost $500,000 to support local women and girls.
