Women’s Giving Circle

The Women’s Giving Circle is a collaboration of charitable women who combine their treasure and passion to create opportunities for the women and children of Ripley County. Women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to join the effort. A portion of all sponsorships and memberships are invested into the Linda S. Phaneuf Women & Children Fund and a portion funds annual grants.

2023 Women’s Giving Circle Luncheon


It was wonderful to have Allison Barber, President and COO of the WNBA Indiana Fever speaking at our Women’s Giving Circle Luncheon! She inspired ladies with her message: “Take it to the hoop!” In order to make a change you must go for the goal, have drive, and take risks. When you want to do something difficult, surround yourself with people who believe in you.
