The Women’s Giving Alliance, an initiative of The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, is a dynamic group of diverse women who pool their philanthropic giving to make a lasting impact on the lives of women and girls in Northeast Florida. Since 2001, hundreds of women in Northeast Florida have become WGA members, making an annual contribution of $1,500 each. Through those contributions, WGA has awarded grants totaling more than $8.9 million to 70 nonprofit organizations. It also has built an endowment of nearly $5 million to ensure the future of its philanthropic work. For more information: www.wganefl.org.

"The WGA is a resounding success — empowering women as philanthropists, investing in nonprofits that support women and girls and bringing rigor and thought leadership to a novel model of collective giving," she said. "Jacksonville should be proud of WGA, a growing and active example of homegrown investing. Hundreds of women have become more knowledgeable about our community while actively working to improve it, and tens of thousands of dollars have been thoughtfully invested. What’s not to love?"
