PROFILE: Established in 2013, the Three Corners Women’s Giving Circle (TCWGC) is a women’s philanthropy group based in Leeds, Utah. It is a fund of the Community Foundation of Utah. Active and diverse women make up this giving circle to benefit local women and girls in the region. TCWGC aims to “strengthen the influence and well-being of all women and girls in our region while helping members experience the benefits of planned giving.” It funds local safety, health, education, economic advancement, leadership, and personal development efforts.

The Three Corners Women’s Giving Circle hosts four meetings each year for its members to meet and learn about local charitable work being done. TCWGC members vote for new grantees at January meetings. In general, the women of this group are interested in local schools, domestic violence victims, women’s leadership representation, homelessness, and women’s equality in the workplace.

Grants range between about $4,000 and $8,000. The funder typically gives between $20,000 and $35,000 per year. Learn more about this funder’s local giving on TCWGC’s voting page.
