Can a member nominate a charity?
Of course! Contact the organization directly and provide our information so they can begin the grant application process. Ask them to reference your name in their application so we know how they found us!
Where does my membership money go?
100% of the $200 annual membership fee goes into our growing fund. During each giving circle, three organizations will give a five minute presentation explaining why they should be selected to receive a portion of the fund. Members vote and an organization is selected. The two remaining organizations can apply to receive funds during future giving circles. Whatever membership money is not awarded to the selected charity remains in the fund and contributes to long-term growth.
