The Tiffany Circle’s impact upon the American Red Cross and indeed, the women’s philanthropic movement, finds its roots in the ownership and initiative of the Tiffany Circle members and leaders. Bonnie McElveen Hunter and Melanie Sabelhaus conceived of this network of women philanthropists around America committed to the service of their communities. Since inception, Tiffany Circle members have cumulatively donated more than $182 million dollars to address the needs of our communities.
Upon close examination today, scores of women in each chapter are personally engaged in the program through mission delivery and outreach to draw in new members. With the advent of the Tiffany Circle Summit in 2007, these members began their own network of philanthropy and friendship. The spirit of Tiffany Circle has taken flight and Tiffany Circle Societies have taken root in order in Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
