Women’s Health Fund

Women's Health Fund Logo

The Rita J. Bicknell Women’s Health Endowed Fund is made up of two giving circles, the Women’s Giving Circle (WGC) and the Circle of Friends (COF). The Women’s Health Fund’s mission is:

To improve the health and well-being of women by supporting education, increasing awareness and sharing quality of life opportunities to benefit all women.

The Women’s Giving Circle was established in 2007, and the Circle of Friends was established in 2013.  Each year members of the two giving circles review grant applications and approve funds for programs fulfilling the Fund’s mission. The COF offers grants of up to $2,000, and the WGC provides grants in excess of $2,000.

Since their respective foundings, the WGC has contributed over $301,000 and the COF has contributed more than $43,000 to fund grants for women’s health.
