Mathews Women’s Giving Circle

The Mathews Womens Giving Circle is a group of like-minded, purpose-driven women who share a common interest in supporting the needs of the Mathews County community through philanthropy and collective giving.  

The mission of the Mathews Womens Giving Circle is to support the well being of women and families in Mathews County through annual grant awards. In addition to our annual grant making, we educate members about community issues and the nonprofits that are addressing the issues most effectively. Our annual Speaker’s Series includes a roster of community leaders who address and inform our membership on the state of our County. 


The Mathews Women’s Giving Circle is hosted by the Mathews Community Foundation, which makes it possible for member contributions to tax deductible.
