Women's Giving Circle
When women come together, BIG things happen.

 

And big things are happening in the Adelphi University Women’s Giving Circle. Here members come together to share their voices, ideas, talents and financial resources in order to make a bigger impact on Adelphi than any one member could individually.

 

Members Jennifer Krol '17 & Ann Dick '47

Whether they are providing emergency grant-in-aids for students experiencing financial hardships, rewarding graduating seniors and graduate students through the annual essay contest or raising $81,000 to establish The Women's Giving Circle Endowed Scholarship, these women demonstrate the true meaning of philanthropy and their motto: Courage to Inspire, Strength to Empower.

 

 

Need more proof the Women’s Giving Circle is a force for meaningful change at Adelphi?

 

  • Last year the Circle awarded $3,800 to the Health Services Center to fund the Work-Life Wellness Certificate Program, which provides students with individualized approaches to wellness. This program was awarded the "Civic Learning Program Excellence Award" by the Long Island Council of Student Personnel Administrators.

 

  • The group awarded a $7,200 grant to hire a part-time grant writer for the Bridges to Adelphi who has gone on to secure an additional $100,000 in funding for the program.

 

  • A $5,228 grant from the Circle launched the Red Watch Band program on campus in 2016. This nationally recognized initiative provides undergraduate students with alcohol education so they can understand and recognize the signs for alcohol overdose while promoting a culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion and respect. More than 100 students have been trained to date, and in 2018, the program received permanent funding from the University.

 

We invite all women who want their voices heard to join the Women's Giving Circle. Membership begins at $100, with special rates for recent alumni, but we welcome contributions of any amount in support of the Circle’s mission.

 

100% of donations go back to the Adelphi community in targeted ways that are difficult to achieve through general giving to the University.
