Who are members of Anne Arundel Women Giving Together (AAWGT)?
AAWGT is a nonpartisan group that welcomes women of all ages from diverse backgrounds who want to participate in its mission to improve the lives of other women and families in Anne Arundel County. The only requirement for membership is a contribution and you can easily join by mail or online following the steps on the Join or Renew page. The minimum annual contribution is $550 ($275 for women age 35 and under). $500 goes directly to the grants fund and $50 covers operating costs (or $25 for women age 35 and under).
How much of my annual contribution is tax deductible?
In most cases, 100% of your contribution is tax-deductible.
How is my contribution used?
Ninety percent of each membership contribution becomes part of the grant fund and is awarded in the year following the contribution. The remaining 10% administrative fee covers AAWGT's marketing, member outreach events, education and grants programs and support from the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County. If you make a general donation to AAWGT, you may specify how you want the funds to be used, e.g., grant funds, member scholarships, administrative support, etc.
How long is my commitment when I join?
Your commitment is for one year and membership renews annually on a calendar basis. If you wish, you may pay for more than one year at a time.
When is my contribution due?
We ask members to send their renewals by June 30 with final payment to be received no later than December 31.
