All gifts received during the calendar year are placed into a grant fund, which is then divided into two pools. One pool will provide an award for a GSU campus-centered academic, athletic, cultural, or community service learning program. The other pool will grow the scholarship endowment which will provide an academic award to a GSU female student who exemplifies excellence in both the classroom and community. Donations to this fund help cover the costs for specific projects and initiatives that are decided upon annually by members.

In addition to aiding projects on campus, members will help create a culture of female empowerment on the GSU campus and surrounding community, helping women to prepare for and grow in their careers and leadership positions. Members are encouraged to recruit 1-2 new members annually to help ensure the Women’s Leadership Circle has an increasing impact on both the GSU Campus and surrounding community. In addition, members shall actively attend events, vote on scholarship and grant recipients, and positively promote Glenville State University.

Glenville State University Foundation Women’s Leadership Circle Vision Statement

Women’s Leadership Circle envisions a community of female givers who provide opportunities and support to female students at Glenville State University.

  • All women have skills and resources to be independent, self-sufficient and contributing members of the community
  • All women are empowered and equipped to be leaders in the community
  • All women are active givers who share their time, talent and treasure to better the community regardless of their economic status

As women, we give our time, talent, and treasure differently and in diverse ways, making each of us unique.  We want to give back to our community as we continue to learn and grow.
