Glenville, WV – The Women’s Leadership Circle (WLC) is a women’s giving circle created and sponsored by the Glenville State College Foundation and founded on the basis of fellowship, opportunity, and philanthropy.
Memberships run from July 1 to June 30, and each member will receive invitations to exclusive GSC WLC events, a quarterly newsletter, and a commemorative scarf on their third anniversary to the WLC.
All gifts received during the calendar year are placed into a grant fund, which is then divided into two pools. One pool will provide an award for a GSC campus-centered academic, athletic, cultural, or community service learning program.
The other pool will grow the scholarship endowment, which will provide an academic award to a GSC female student who exemplifies excellence in both the classroom and community. Donations to this fund help cover the costs for specific projects and initiatives that are decided upon annually by members.
In addition to aiding projects on campus, members will help create a culture of female empowerment on the GSC campus and surrounding community, helping women to prepare for and grow in their careers and leadership positions. They shall actively attend events, vote on scholarship and grant recipients, and positively promote Glenville State College.
“I want to encourage all women to come together as we fund projects and help young college women to grow, learn, and develop leadership skills. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones while also improving the lives of women at our college,” said Maureen Gildein, President of the GSC Alumni Association and Lecturer of Health and Physical Education at Glenville State.
The Glenville State College Women’s Leadership Circle is a $500 annual contribution. Those who wish to participate as a non-voting member may with a $250 annual contribution.
