Women's Giving Circle

Giving Circles Make an Impact

At a time when individuals seem increasingly distant from each other, the Women’s Giving Circle of the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation is a simple and powerful concept: women come together, combine their dollars in a shared fund, decide collectively where to give money, and learn more about their community and philanthropy.

The Giving Circle of MCHF plays to women's strengths as networkers and collaborators and offers a way for smaller donors to be part of something larger—yet not so large they have no meaningful voice. The Giving Circle is a group of women who are grounded in a tradition of volunteerism & sharing and bring a legacy of community engagement.

Giving Circles Make a Difference

The Women’s Giving Circle of the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation makes grants to non-profit organizations small and large, as well as to individuals and community groups. Funding decisions are made collectively by the Giving Circle members who choose when, how much, and who to support with gifts and grants.

  • Collaborate with women to make a difference
  • Create a living legacy
  • Celebrate with others the impact of your participation and support
  • Support and promote women in leadership positions
  • Have a deeper and better giving experience
  • Achieve more meaningful giving
  • Meet new friends and socialize
