03 Oct Women’s Giving Circle Grants $10,000 to Local Organizations
The Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle hosted their annual event at the Times Theater last Thursday, September 28. Over 30 women attended the event, where the group granted $10,000 to local charitable organizations.
Receiving the most member votes, Recovery Café was awarded a $3,500 grant to help fund an on-site clinical therapist. A $2,500 grant awarded to the Imagination Library project headed up by the Fulton County Public Library and the Ladybug Foundation. Caston Robotics was awarded a $2,000 grant for program upgrades, and $1,000 grants were awarded to both the Fulton County Animal Center and Liberty Lions Club.
“The Café is here to care for people, and members can be seen in the Café by our clinical therapist – most of the time – on the day they ask for an appointment,” said Recovery Café Executive Director Pat Brown. “This is how we’re going to impact the lives of real people who need help, [by] giving them effective help when and where they need it.”
Since 2010, the Women’s Giving Circle has granted nearly $90,000 to Fulton County charitable groups. Members pay a $120 annual donation that goes towards that year’s grant dollars as well as the giving circle’s endowment fund.
