Our Work

Womens Center
WGA partners with area nonprofits including The Women's Center of Jacksonville to multiply opportunities and impact.

It takes just one small action to create a powerful ripple effect of change. When you invest in a woman, you invest in her children and generations to follow. WGA funds, educates and advocates for women and girls to strengthen our families, communities and future. As our work and Membership grow, so too does our ability to expand our reach and impact.

Since 2002, WGA has awarded more than $4.9 million to more than 45 nonprofit organizations. We have built an endowment of more than $2.8 million, ensuring local women's and girls' needs will be addressed for years to come.

“Beyond the sheer goodness of philanthropy, it is interesting to see how a smart group of people put their good intentions into action.”

- The Florida Times-Union - editorial about WGA's impact, April 5, 2013 -

While central to our goals, strategic grantmaking is just one part of our work. We focus on four core areas to create powerful circles of change:

  • Research – We commission research to inform our decisions and educate the public, our Members and policy makers.
  • Strategic Grantmaking – Our rigorous grantmaking process utilizes the varied talents of our Member Volunteers. We seek out innovative, collaborative efforts that may be scaled and measured to achieve long-term impact. Our evaluation teams work with grantees throughout the grant cycle to assess progress and help work through any challenges.
  • Education – Through our educational offerings and committee participation, our Members become better informed, more deliberate strategic philanthropists.
  • Individual Advocacy – WGA explores ways to influence public policy through non-partisan activities. Our Members advocate for causes that impact the well-being of women and girls in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns Counties.
