Three Corners Women's Giving Circle

The Three Corners Women's Giving Circle is an active and fun community of women who pool our friendship, intellect, and resources to effect change for women and girls in the Three Corners region: southern Utah, northwest Arizona, and Mesquite, Nevada.

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. Inspired, another group of passionate women formed the Three Corners Women's Giving Circle in 2013, working to change that number — and some others:

  • Although the gap between men and women graduates from college is decreasing, Utah women are far behind the rest of the nation.
  • Utah has the second largest wage gap in the nation.
  • Utah ranks 32nd in women owned businesses. Most of these are considered to be small businesses.
  • Domestic violence related homicides in Utah have accounted for 42% of the homicides in Utah.
  • As of 2017 30-50% of female-headed households were living at or below the poverty level.
  • Utah ranks in the bottom 10 states for female representation in elected offices.

Our Goals

We believe that the power of the collective pocketbook results in high impact giving and more opportunities to effect change. Real change comes when a community invests in itself. We seek to strengthen the influence and well-being of all women and girls in our region while helping members experience the benefits of planned giving. Through the strength of collective giving we support women and girls of all ages in the three corners area by funding nonprofit projects and programs in the areas of:

  • Safety
  • Health
  • Education
  • Economic Advancement
  • Leadership
  • Personal Development
