African-American Women's
Giving and Empowerment Circle

African-American philanthropy has deep roots in American culture. In Arizona, African-Americans are active philanthropists who are established residents, engaged in civic life and motivated by strong personal beliefs that compel their commitment to help others.

Together, we can do more.

These and other statistics are revealed in ACF's 2010 Black Philanthropy Survey.

Members of the African-American Women's Giving and Empowerment Circle are professional women who are committed to making Arizona a better place.

Each Giving Circle member contributes $1,000 annually and participates on one or more committees. Funding recommendations from Giving Circle committees are presented to the Governance Council and ultimately approved by the Arizona Community Foundation.

The Giving Circle's Governance Council meets quarterly. Members of the Leadership Council participate in at least three meetings annually and one or more of the Program Area Committee meetings.

Participation on a Committee is open to all men and women who are interested in the priorities of the African-American Women's Giving and Empowerment Circle, including people of all races and backgrounds, and who fulfill the $1,000 annual contribution.
