The group hopes to expand its membership this year and expand its mission of helping women and children in Jefferson County.

With the hope of what women can do through combining their financial strength, the Women’s Giving Circle of Jefferson County (WGCJC) was founded in 2012.

Jane Williams joined the organization in the first year because she was “always very interested in services for women and children. I thought the concept was very unique, and 10 years ago that was a particularly busy time in my life, and I wanted to help but I didn’t have a lot of time to commit. So, this was perfect for me, and I’ve always stayed interested.”
