A small group of community-minded women were looking for a way to improve the lives of women in Delaware County. The intention was to create a women’s giving circle where members pool resources, collectively explore the community’s needs, and then decide together how to distribute resources for maximum impact.
One founding member observed that “one person’s donation may seem insignificant, but when we pool many donations, the grants become something that an organization can use to launch a new project or sustain a vital one.”
Founded in 2019, our goal, to reach 50 members was exceeded with 57 women signing up. Project W will award its first round of grants to Delaware County non-profit organizations in October 2019
