Women's Giving Circle
Women’s Giving Circle is about connecting women in Atlanta to the mission of BGCMA and providing a format for them to play an important role in transforming the future for girls who attend a Boys & Girls Club. Circle members provide significant financial resources and are communicated with on a regular basis, ensuring members stay connected and educated about their investment. They also recruit like-minded women to join the cause and ultimately grow the circle of influence BGCMA Women’s Giving Circle has on the community. Women’s Giving Circle opens the door for Great Futures for girls!

How Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta Is Impacting Young Girls
BGCMA reaches an average of 1,380 girls ages 6-18 every day in 24 Clubs across the region, many of whom come from single-parent, economically disadvantaged homes. The Women's Giving Circle has been created to help fund programs designed specifically for these girls. The programs focus on academics, self-confidence, leadership skills, and healthy lifestyles - things these young women need to be successful in life.
Donations from Women's Giving Circle members will be used to support existing programs like SMART Girls, Girl Power Summit and Youth of the Year, as well as to develop new programs that address the evolving needs of young women in our community.
