Women’s Giving Circle

Building and strengthening Hospice & Community Care…through the power of joint contributions

Be part of a group of women who are making things happen for Hospice & Community Care!  The Women’s Giving Circle reached 130+ members strong in 2018.  You can join together with women of all ages, backgrounds, professions and interests who believe in the mission of Hospice.  The Women’s Giving Circle provides interested women with the unique opportunity to pool their individual annual contribution of $500 and have a greater impact by investing in programs and services that build and strengthen hospice-related programs through the power of joint contributions.

Hospice & Community Care’s Women’s Giving Circle began in 2004 with 24 women who joined together on a philanthropic journey to support Hospice & Community Care. The Circle has grown significantly since then and has raised nearly $500,000 since 2004 to support nearly 150 Hospice & Community Care programs and projects.
