Columbia Friendship Circle

Columbia Friendship Circle began when the wives of two seminary professors encouraged other Atlanta wives to contribute one dollar each to help the seminary. From that small group, Columbia Friendship Circle has grown to include all who participate in the Presbyterian Women’s organizations throughout the synods of South Atlantic and Living Waters. Churches from other denominations are also welcome to join.

Their mission continues today in three ways:

In recent years support has focused on scholarships for students with families and fellowships awarded to outstanding graduates.
To support the goal of three scholarships — $52,000 — make a gift online, by check, or with stock.
