How the Giving Circle Works

Each year, like-minded philanthropists pool their resources to make a significant impact! As a Giving Circle member, you are invited to:

  • Encourage your favorite nonprofits to apply for grant funding
  • Review submitted grant proposals
  • Select your three favorite proposals to advance to the final vote
  • Bring a guest to the fall cocktail reception to hear finalists’ presentations
  • Cast your vote to determine the $10,000 grant winner
  • Celebrate your impact with grant recipients at a gathering in the spring
