Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle

Supporting Social Ventures Led By and Benefiting Women

Did you know that only 4 percent of the total dollar value of all small business loans goes to women entrepreneurs? You can change that.

As a member of Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle, your philanthropy will directly expand funding opportunities for women entrepreneurs. Together, members will determine how to deploy their pooled resources to support social ventures led by and benefiting women while receiving a hands-on education from WFCO partner, Impact Finance Center.

If you check these boxes, consider the Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle as your next step in supporting the advancement of women:

  • You are interested in strengthening your community through collective giving with likeminded individuals.
  • You seek to leverage your charitable dollars for change while developing a greater understanding of community needs.
  • You are interested in learning how to invest in impact projects.
  • You enjoy combining your philanthropic passions and networking opportunities.

Donors to the Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle contribute a minimum of $2,000.

Please note that members do not earn income or receive return of principal from this fund.
Any principal returned, or income earned, at any time from distributions made during your membership are returned to the Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle fund for future distribution.
