Women's Giving Circle

The Women’s Giving Circle is an innovative way to play a role in the education of Olathe students. A donation of $100 will allow you to be a part of the Women’s Giving Circle. In April 2017, more than 80 women each cast a single vote. The $15,000 winning grant went to A Different Way to Shop, a program that will create an automation-based technology education lab at Olathe South High School.

The next OPSF Women’s Giving Circle event is scheduled for October 24, 2017.  The area of focus is student need and will grant $10,000 to the winning project. Olathe teachers are to identify a problem/challenge faced by students in need and then submit a grant proposal stating how they would address that problem/challenge utilizing resources funded with the grant. If you'd like to make your gift and join, please click here.
