21 Oct Women’s Giving Circle Grants $9,000 to Local Organizations

The Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle hosted their annual event at Jarrety’s Arlington Public House on October 18. Over 30 women attended the event, where the group granted $9,000 to local charitable organizations.

“We are honored to have another year of this uplifting group of women coming together to positively impact Fulton County residents,” said the giving circle’s chairwomen Jennifer Smith.

The grant recipients include The Outlet Youth Center, who received $3,500 for outdoor play and sports equipment and Riddle Elementary that was awarded $2,500 for their One Book, One School Program as well as United Ministries, who received $1,500 to support their food pantry and the Fulton County 4-H Dog Club, which was given $1,500 to upgrade their agility equipment.

“We are so incredibly thankful for this gift,” said Outlet Director Patience Hisey. “With these funds, we can purchase outdoor equipment for all ages to enjoy!”

The Women’s Giving Circle members pay a $120 yearly donation, and membership dues must be paid to vote for grant recipients. Women can get a jumpstart on their 2023 membership by visiting The Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle page at nicf.org.
