The Women’s Giving Circle, a fund of the Eau Claire Community Foundation, is accepting applications for its 2018 grant program until July 1. The Women’s Giving Circle will award grants of up to $6,000 to nonprofit organizations that offer programs to support women and children.

“Our Board of Trustees approved a 5 percent distribution versus its normal 4 percent distribution in celebration of the Foundation’s 20th anniversary,” said Sue Bornick, executive director of the Eau Claire Community Foundation.

“This increase means the Women’s Giving Circle has even more grant dollars available to award in 2018.” The total amount available for distribution in 2018 is more than $42,000. For more information about grant eligibility and the application process, visit this website.
