Giving Circle sponsoring literature program for girls

The Heritage Fund’s Women’s Giving Circle of Bartholomew County is sponsoring a new project to inspire young girls through literature.

“Turning the Page … For Girls in Bartholomew County” will provide books, including biographies about empowered women and those containing strong female characters, to area elementary school libraries. The titles, including “Almost Astronauts: 13 Women Who Dared to Dream” by Tanya Stone and “Rad American Women A-Z” by Kate Schatz, among others, were selected by Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. administrators.

The goal for the project is to raise $5,000 to purchase the books. To donate, visit the Heritage Fund website at and type “Turning the Page” in the first field.

The Women’s Giving Circle seeks to empower women through philanthropy and to make a positive change in the lives of women and families in Bartholomew County.
