The Women’s Giving Circle is a diverse, dynamic and generous group of women engaged in an exciting venture of strategic philanthropy. This is a program by the Missoula Community Foundation in partnership with the Women’s Foundation of Montana, this year we will collectively pool the resources of local women to leverage their modest gifts to grant another $10,000 for worthy local organizations! The Circle is run by its members, and they will vote on who receives funding.
