The Boomerang Sisterhood is a women’s giving circle that draws upon the wisdom and resources of Miami County women to create a better society. Women participate by making an annual contribution of $120 (payable in installments) to the Boomerang Sisterhood Fund, thereby becoming a voting member.

From these contributions, members of the Boomerang Sisterhood annually grant to charitable projects for the benefit of Miami County. Members don’t have to worry about attending regular meetings or extended responsibilities, other than to cast an annual vote for projects they want to see supported. All gifts are pooled together in an endowment fund held by the Community Foundation. The earnings of which will be used for grants.

The Mission of the Boomerang Sisterhood is: “to inspire Miami County women to reach their full potential to create a better society.”
