The Women’s Giving Connection of Southern Idaho (WGC) was conceived by our founding president and community leader, Linda Watkins. Official planning got underway in 2018 with Linda Watkins and fellow community volunteers and philanthropists Lori Ward, Kathy MacMillan and Sami Ashenbrener serving as the founding Executive Committee for the Board of Directors.
The goals of the WGC include providing pooled giving opportunities by an inclusive and diverse group of women for the purpose of dedicated grant making to local non-profits as well as building a collective giving endowment through the Idaho Community Foundation.
Formal kick off activities and membership meeting took place December 2021, and we look forward to growing our membership and granting each and every year.
