Building a community of strong, compassionate, and dedicated women who's pooled talents and resources compliment and enhance hospital services and experiences for patients and staff.
Each of us may not be able to affect health care on a national level, but we absolutely can here in Harrisonburg, Rockingham County and surrounding communities.

The RMH Women’s Giving Group consists of focused women coming together to build and strengthen our community by sharing time, talents and treasure with RMH. By combining financial resources we will identify and nurture projects and programs within RMH and award annual grants that will ultimately improve quality of life for everyone who receives care at RMH.
Women are busy. We need a purpose for where we spend our time. We need connection to where we spend our energy and resources.
That’s why we only have 4 gatherings per year. And even if you can’t make all of them your participation is still valuable and assists the mission of this Giving Circle!
The White Rose Giving Circle is a group of philanthropic women who each gift $500 annually to the RMH Foundation. Their $500 gift is combined with the other $500 gifts and before you know it, a major gift has been given!
Each member has the opportunity to view all grant proposals and vote for where the collective dollars are spent.
Since 2008 when this Giving Circle was created, over $575,000 has been given by them to support hospital programs and meet the healthcare challenges faced by our community.

"We come from a variety of professional backgrounds. I was, and continue to be, intrigued with the resourcefulness of the women in the group"

These are a community women who want to make a difference. It is amazing to see a group of women, who care about the hospital, and want to see that workers and patients are in the position for the best care.

“ [joining] was intriguing. It [is] a group of ladies doing something special...And it didn’t require a lot of meetings. Women can be very efficient.”
