The Tiffany Circle is a nationwide network of women leaders and philanthropists who change lives, save lives and strengthen their local community with an annual investment of $10,000 in their local Red Cross Chapter.

The name Tiffany and the $10,000 amount have a historical precedent. The society is named in honor of the beautiful Tiffany windows in the Board of Governors Hall at the historic American Red Cross national headquarters in Washington, DC.
