Our Mission

To provide Catholic women with the opportunity for service, fellowship, spiritual growth and to improve the Memphis community by stewardship and charity in the gospel tradition.

Madonna Circle, organized in 1936, is an active, Catholic women’s organization providing assistance to the community through fundraising and volunteerism.  We support 4 or 5 organizations annually.  One or more charitable or non-profit groups are selected to be GRANT RECIPIENTS which are supported financially through our major fundraising efforts such as our ANNUAL SWEEPSTAKES and major charitable events. Our fundraising efforts have provided millions of dollars to our Memphis community.

Over 80 years of serving Our Community

Since 1936,  "Ladies in Blue" have had a strong tradition of fundraising and volunteerism.  Our legacy of giving continues over 80 years later. We have granted over $3.5 million to over 100 charitable organizations and donated hundreds of thousands of service hours.
