What is The Women’s Giving Circle?
A group of dynamic local women who pay an annual membership to come together and pool resources to fund projects and programs to improve the lives of women, children and families in Bartholomew County. Each year we accept grant applications from local nonprofits for projects and programs that fall into one of our funding categories (self-sufficiency for women, empowerment, education for women and youth, parental support, and women in crisis ). Our members vote on the projects to receive funding.
