October 25, 2017

The Jacksonville-based Women’s Giving Alliance kicked off its new five-year focus on breaking the cycle of female poverty by awarding $450,000 in grants to Northeast Florida nonprofits.

Founded in 2002, the alliance is a group of 400 women who pool their philanthropic giving under the auspices of The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. Each member contributes $1,500 annually to participate in collective grant making — $5.45 million to date — as well as building an endowment.
