How the Giving Circle Works

Women's Giving Circle Members
  1. Each member makes an annual gift of $500, $1,000 or more to create a large grant pool. (Gifts of $1,000 also qualify you for membership in the President's Circle.) Gifts received after May 1 qualify for membership the following year. The membership year begins May 2 and goes through May 1 the following year. Women under the age of 40 can join for $250.
  2. In November, requests for proposals are sent to OSU community.
  3. Volunteer members review proposals in February-March. 
  4. In April, all members vote on grant awards.
  5. The following autumn, Giving Circle members gather to celebrate grants with the recipients.
