WGC's Emergency Response Network COVID-19 Fund

Howard County, Maryland

The WGC's Emergency Response Network (ERN) was created over 15 years ago and is typically utilized for donations up to $1,000 to help an individual in need through our nonprofit partners. However, to address the escalating and unprecedented coronavirus public health crisis, we recently extended the scope of the ERN for a period of time to assist broader needs and more people in our community.

Not only are we inviting donations to the WGC at http://www.womensgivingcircle.org to directly support our ERN partners, but we are also inviting donations directly to our ERN partners through this WGC Emergency Response Network COVID-19 Showcase Fund.

We are focusing on helping in every way that we can and will continue to remain flexible and nimble to be as responsive as we can to growing community needs.
