A group of women donors to The University of Toledo met in 2004 to begin laying the groundwork for a women’s giving circle at UT. This culminated in November of 2005 when the group officially organized under the name of “Women & Philanthropy at The University of Toledo” (W&P). Bylaws for the group were established and work began to bring the vision to life.
Members of our giving circle pledge a minimum of $1,000 per year to a donor-designated fund at The University of Toledo Foundation. All donations from members are deposited into a pooled fund and at the end of the year, the monies will be granted to a University program based on a member vote.
Inaddition to the philanthropic work done by the circle, members enjoy special programming and the opportunity to meet with each other. Members care deeply about their opportunities to influence, mentor and guide other young women on their own private road to philanthropy.
Through an unwavering commitment to The University of Toledo, members hope to empower and educate women in philanthropic activities through networking and leadership opportunities.
