About the Group
“I’m delighted to be a part of the Circles group; in a few short months it has already been very stimulating for me and I know there is tremendous potential for us to make a positive impact.” – Circles member Angela Cooper
Circles has a shared vision with the Women’s Fund, a community where every woman and girl has the opportunity to reach her full potential.

Circles members serve a 3-year term. Each class is greater than 15 but not larger than 30 members. The attendance requirement for membership is to attend 75% of the monthly meetings, committee meetings as needed, participation in a group project, and attendance in least two Women’s Fund events a year. In addition we require a $100 donation to the Women’s Fund, some scholarships are available.
Circles members are selected for three-year terms based on community involvement, contributions in their workplace and their vision for women in Omaha.
