Members of The Circle of Women’s Health Philanthropists, now in its eighth year and 52 women strong, demonstrated their continuing generosity to Summa Health at their annual holiday gathering held virtually on Thursday, December 9, 2021. Circle members awarded $106,000 bringing their total to $771,000 in grants distributed since the group formed in 2014.
Circle members range in age from 35 to 95 and have diverse backgrounds in business, medicine, philanthropy and much more. They are wives, mothers, daughters and grandmothers. And, they share a common goal: Helping other women.
“We take great pride in our mission to improve the overall health of women in our community,” said Colleen O’Connor Wernig, chair of The Circle. “The remarkable success of funding three grants this year continues to be a reflection of our members and their ever-increasing dedication and enthusiasm.”
The Circle grants awarded in 2021 will support the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Neuroscience Institute and Pastoral Care Services at Summa Health.
“Thank you to our grant recipients for their commitment to women’s healthcare in our community,” said Colleen. We’re thrilled to be able to support Summa Health and these vitally important services, and we look forward to hearing about their progress in the year ahead.”
