Discuss a Book

 Want to become better informed about needs and issues affecting our community? The AAWGT Book Group meets six times a year, and reads nonfiction pertinent to our mission. We convene for 90 minutes with snacks and a glass of wine (optional) for a fascinating conversation at a member’s home. Members are welcome to bring a guest to join us. We select titles for the coming year in November at our annual potluck dinner, based on member nominations that never disappoint. To learn more or to join the group, send an email to

Help Lead and Grow AAWGT

 Nine standing committees are the foundation of AAWGT’s operations and serve as the backbone for our accomplishments to date — Education and Program, Governance, Grants, Grants Systems, Leadership Development and Nominating, Marketing and Communication, Membership, and Post Grants Evaluation. An ad hoc group handles web/IT matters. Join our leadership to shape the future of our giving circle. Information on all committees is located here.

Attend an Education Session

 AAWGT holds several educational sessions throughout the year. Topics have included the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, women and leadership, food security, and transportation.

See Our Contributions At Work

 Want to learn more about where our dollars go? Join us for our Annual Field Trip to visit a prior or current grantee. We’ve visited a therapeutic riding program, observed tutoring at a local elementary school, visited an arts nonprofit in action, toured a new interactive library program, and more. All members are invited to this outing.
