Women’s Giving Circle

What is the Women’s Giving Circle?

The Women’s Giving Circle is a new initiative of The Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana dedicated to bringing together a group of women to learn about the needs in our Diocese and community, to raise awareness and funds for philanthropic giving. Designed as a giving circle, this group will leverage a pooled fund to have greater impact on the organizations they select.

Our Mission

Through collective giving, collaboration, and shared faith, The Mother Teresa Women’s Giving Circle seeks to promote philanthropy that empowers women, compels action, and glorifies God.

Why have a Catholic Women’s Giving Circle?

The Mother Teresa Women’s Giving Circle brings together Catholic women from diverse backgrounds with one common goal: to bring about change through the power of grants that transform lives and build the body of Christ. Throughout the year, we will gather to learn about organizations and their needs, and decide together which projects to fund. There will also be opportunities to share ideas, serve with one another and, of course, plenty of time to socialize.

Who Should Join?

Women of any age who want to have a meaningful impact on our Catholic community.

Who We Support?

Members will vote annually on recipient beneficiaries serving the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux and our local community. The voting process and grant announcement occurs late spring/early summer. In 2019 we will be focused on nonprofits that support women and children and issues in these areas.
