How Giving Circle Works
It’s simple. Local philanthropists like you pool your contributions, and each year you decide which transformative community project receives a $10,000+ grant.
As a Giving Circle member, you revolutionize your giving. There are two membership levels of engagement: 
Standard Membership Includes:
  • Encouraging your favorite nonprofits to apply for grant funding
  • Reviewing submitted project proposals
  • Selecting your three favorite proposals to advance to the final vote
  • Attending the fall cocktail reception to hear finalists’ presentations
  • Casting your vote, live at the event, to determine the $10,000 grant winner
  • Celebrating your impact with grant recipients at a summer gathering

VIP Membership Includes:

  • All of the above and…
  • Doubling your pooled contribution that funds an additional grant awarded at the fall reception
  • Deciding which finalist organization receives the supplemental grant to use toward their amazing project
The 2023 Giving Circle finalists are:
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Housing Transitions
  • Youth Service Bureau
