St. Martha Giving Circle Invites Women to Join

The Catholic Foundation’s St. Martha Giving Circle will be kicking off their annual membership drive on July 29, the feast day of St. Martha. The St. Martha Giving Circle is a group designed to bring Catholic women together to raise awareness and funds for charities in the Diocese of Columbus. Started in 2014, the Marthas gather to learn about organizations and their needs, to join together in service and to decide together which projects to fund. Martha memberships in the first year greatly exceeded expectations, with nearly 120 members (40 of which contributed $1000 to join the Founder’s Circle).

The Marthas recently announced their 2017 grant recipients, awarding $25,000 to nine well-deserved organizations in the Diocese of Columbus.

Women of all ages and backgrounds should consider joining the St. Martha Giving Circle. Gifts to the fund might range from $10 – $10,000, but The Catholic Foundation asks for a minimum contribution of $100 for voting privileges. Non-voting members are free to participate in all activities, outside of the annual grant-making vote.

To learn more or to join, email marthas@catholic-foundation.org or call 614-443-8893. For additional information about the St. Martha Giving Circle, please visit www.catholic-foundation.org/TheMarthas.
