The Women's Giving Circle of Frederick County, founded in 2006, brings women together who share common philanthropic goals to benefit women's needs.

The Women's Giving Circle provides opportunities for donors to promote and support programs that enable and empower women in challenging situations to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of those for whom they are responsible. Funds collected by the Circle are held and managed as a component fund of The Community Foundation of Frederick County entitled The Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County Fund.

Thanks to support from the Women's Giving Circle, we are training new volunteer tutors and providing educational materials for more women who are learning to read or speak English. Literacy programs for women have a major impact on the family and our community by helping them to earn a living wage so they can afford food, shelter, clothing and medical care, as well as help their children be successful in school.
