The American Red Cross of the Greater Chesapeake Region recently hosted a gathering for the members of the Tiffany Circle and their guests. Taking place at an Orioles game, members and their guests networked with one another, received their Tiffany charms, learned about how their donations are utilized by the Red Cross, and met with Red Cross leadership!
Members of the Tiffany Circle are a group of generous and highly-involved women who continue to ensure that the Red Cross has the ability to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to life's emergencies. The Tiffany Circle takes its name from the historic stained glass windows in the Board of Governors Hall at Red Cross national headquarters in Washington, D.C. Installed in 1917, the windows were commissioned from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Studios. The windows cost $10,000 and were jointly purchased by the Women’s Relief Corps of the North and the United Daughters of the Confederacy of the South as an act of reconciliation and hope. Tiffany Circle members from across the country, each donate $10,000 or more annually to support the American Red Cross.
Tiffany Circle members have the opportunity to develop a deeper connection with the Red Cross through mission experiences and regular communication including hands-on local mission experiences, participation in the Women’s Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., subscription to the Tiffany Circle e-newsletter, access to the social media site specifically for members, an invitation to the annual “State of the Red Cross” call, and more!
