The mission of 19 founding members of the Del Mar Women’s Giving Collective (DMWGC) is to give away money. Formed in 2018 by Lani Curtis, Founder and Advisory Board Chair, the group is fostering philanthropy and teaching the next generation the art of giving. Membership has grown to 32 women who actively support worthy non-profits in San Diego County to be successful and sustainable. Living up to their name, this year the group gave out $30,000 of grants to 3 recipients. The finalists were whittled down from the member recommendations—each member nominates up to two non-profits to be considered. All members voted to select 6 finalists who were invited to present to the group. Three were chosen.

All women in the 92014 zip are invited to join. New member enrollment is in the fall. Members commit to a donation of $1000 a year, tax deductible, for a minimum of two years plus an additional $100, non-deductible. The DMWGC does meet periodically during the year but does much of its business by email. More information:
