The Boomerang Sisterhood draws upon the wisdom and resources of Miami County women to create a better society. Women make an annual contribution, half of which is endowed and generates annual grant dollars, and half of which is available for current year granting. Members are invited to special events that celebrate their role in philanthropy and support Miami County.

A select group of the members sit on the grant committee and select which applications will be presented to the membership for their vote at the annual meeting.
