The Women’s Giving Network of Wake County (WGN) held their 12th annual grant awards luncheon November 8. WGN is a giving circle of the North Carolina Community Foundation that leverages the power of collective giving through a local network that supports the community in a purposeful way. The Network supports charitable organizations serving women, children and families in Wake County. The 2018 grant recipients were awarded their checks, and one of the 2017 grant recipients was honored. A total of $89,000 was shared amongst The Hope Center at Pullen, Catholic Charities, and Kiran, Inc., and 2017 grant recipient JusticeMatters provided insights into their work.
