Circles

Due to COVID-19 and with the health and safety of our community at heart, all Circles activities will be paused for the remainder of 2020. As a result of this pause, we will not be adding a new class next year but rather restarting efforts in January 2021 with the current cohort. If you have any questions, please contact Erin McArthur.

Circles is a diverse network of professional women who support the mission of the Women’s Fund of Omaha to improve the lives of women and girls in our community while creating a space where women can build authentic relationships with one another.

Shared Vision

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 Mission Statement

Circles is a diverse network of women leaders who support the mission of the Women’s Fund. Through Circles, women cultivate authentic relationships and leverage a community that supports and empowers each other.

Circles Inclusion Statement

Women’s Fund Circles is intentional about creating a community that builds safe and affirming spaces to empower women of all identities.

Circles members can expect:

  • Leadership opportunities
  • Relationships that will last well beyond the three years of active membership
  • To serve as an ambassador for Women and Girls in the community through work with the Women’s Fund

Circles members serve a three-year term with applications opening in July. 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.

“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
