The Women's Giving Alliance, an initiative of The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, is a group of dynamice, diverse women who pool their philanthropic giving to make a lasting impact on the lives of women and girls in Northeast Florida. Since 2001, hundreds of women in Northeast Florida have become WGA members and each makes an annual contribution of $1,500. With these contributions, WGA has awarded grants totaling more than $8.9 million to 70 nonprofit organizations. It also has built an endowment of nearly $5 million to ensure the future of its philanthropic work. For more information:

“You are probably asked to donate to many worthy causes and you may feel like you're not making a real impact. However, with WGA’s research-based strategic philanthropy model that takes a deep dive into community needs, you can be assured your contribution will bring real impactful change.”

– Barbara Finke, CPA, WGA Finance and Grants Finance Committees


"WGA’s investment in research allows us to base our grant making on data and to demonstrate we are serious about having an impact, about moving the needle.”

- Scott McGehee, Past Chair WGA Grants Committee

Sandy Cook

“WGA’s decision to direct our philanthropy to improve the lives of women and girls was due to the very limited philanthropic and programmatic resources available to do so. The combination of WGA’s grants and the research that supports them has been critical to bring the needs of 50+% of our population to light.” 

- Sandy Cook, WGA Past President
