Utah Women in Numbers

In 2011 a small group of women learned that less than 2% of foundation dollars in Utah went directly to serve women and girls. They formed the Utah Women's Giving Circle to change that statistic. Inpired, another group of passionate women formed the Three Corners Women's Giving Circle in 2013, working to change that number — and some others:

  • Utah has the largest gap in the nation between male and female college graduation rates.
  • Utah has the 4th largest wage gap in the nation.
  • Utah has one of the lowest rates of women-owned businesses in the US.
  • Approximately 1 domestic violence-related homicide occurs every month in Utah.
  • Nearly 40% of female-headed households in Utah were in poverty as of 2011.
  • Utah ranks 44th in the nation for female representation in elected office.

Our Goals

We believe that giving collectively results in higher impact gifts and more opportunities to effect change. Through networking and educational events, we identify major challenges and opportunities facing women in our region. We aim to empower women and girls in the Three Corners area by funding programs pertaining to:

  • Safety and Health
  • Education
  • Economic Advancement and Leadership
