There are as many ways to get involved in WGA’s work as there are Members. You can simply be an Investor…or you can be President. It’s entirely up to you, with no obligation to do anything, and no guilt — ever.
However, if you do want to get involved, you can tailor your involvement, dialing your participation up or down to meet your interests and your available time. Meet new friends, deepen your understanding of important issues and enjoy the satisfaction of helping to transform the landscape for women and girls in Northeast Florida, now and in the future.
As an organization by, for and about women, we understand the many demands on your time. The most important thing you can do each year is contribute your membership fee and vote for proposed grants. Beyond that, there is no obligation to do more.
Julia Taylor, Past President
If you would like to get more involved, there are many opportunities to do so. You can always change your level of participation, or step back if you find yourself overcommitted. Many women have found it a good way to try out something new and/or meet new people, with the opportunity to opt out if it is not such a good fit.
We invite you to consider the following opportunities:
“Hey! Everything in life is not glamorous, but the work is still important. I have written an article a month for eNews for several years now and have the satisfaction of making a difference (but from the comfort of my home). I love it!

“After we retired and moved to Amelia Island, I wanted to meet like-minded women in both Nassau County and Jacksonville. WGA has been such a great experience for me. I’ve met women locally beyond my neighborhood through my Connector Group, as well as at ‘downtown’ WGA events. Plus I’ve learned a lot about local challenges for women and girls in Northeast Florida. By giving through WGA, I am able to impact a broader number of worthwhile charities than I can directly support through my volunteer work. The power of collective giving results in greater impact on our community.”

“One of the benefits of WGA is the joy that comes from being part of a highly respected giving circle funding quality initiatives. Another perk is the relationships formed with extraordinary women of diverse backgrounds, talents, passions, and life experiences.”
– Kara Williams, Member
