Women Giving Together Fund Grants are supported by donations to CFWC to benefit the WGT Fund. Half of each gift is placed into the WGT Endowment Fund; the remaining half is placed in the WGT grants fund for the following year.

Community Grants are made possible by general donations to the Foundation placed into the Foundation’s Community Grants Fund, as well as by disbursements from other discretionary (unrestricted) funds created by generous donors. Grants are awarded through a process that includes an application, review by a Grants Committee, and approval by the Governing Council.

In 2019, CFWC awarded over $295,000 in grants from its many funds, all made possible by individual donors who believe in White County and want to help it grow and thrive.
