Our Impact: Invest, Inform, Inspire

We INVEST— pooling our annual contributions for “collective philanthropy,” thus multiplying the power of one by many. Grants focus on health and welfare, education and the prevention and treatment for violence and abuse.

We INFORM — holding in-depth education sessions highlighting issues in our county that require active attention and support.

We INSPIRE — encouraging our members to engage as leaders and philanthropists in our local community.



2022 Grants Showcase

September 13, 2022

AAWGT members and guests learned about 19 local nonprofits working with women, children and families at our annual Grants Showcase held on September 13. Eleven of those nonprofits are 2022 grants recipients. Eight of them received grants from AAWGT in 2021, and made presentations at the event.

The theme of the evening was acknowledging the power of one, multiplied by many. By that, we mean that our members’ contributions to our Grants Fund and Endowment Fund, when added together, have an amazing impact on vulnerable members of our community. In fact, since its founding in 2006, AAWGT has awarded 121 grants to 47 nonprofits totaling close to $1.6M.

Field Trip to Marshall Hope Corporation


When driving up to the Marshall Hope Corporation in West Annapolis on June 23rd, the first thing you see is rows of cars lined up, bumper-to-bumper, ready to receive donations of groceries, feminine products, diapers, cleaning supplies, baby blankets and clothing. Those rows of cars, along with the orderly pick-up stations, illustrate the “why” and the “how” of Marshall Hope’s monthly pop-up food pantry.

Anne Arundel Women Giving Together is deeply committed to understanding, and working to help ameliorate, racial inequities in our community. A Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee has been created to conduct an audit of AAWGT’s policies and procedures with the goal of implementing an action plan to address these issues as AAWGT invests, informs, and inspires.
