Women’s Giving Circle

Women part of the Womens giving circle meeting for a potluck dinner.

The Women’s Giving Circle seeks to improve the situation of our neighbors in need. They accept proposals on an ongoing basis from nonprofits and churches who know of community members in need of immediate assistance. A steering committee reviews the proposals and makes decisions about funding. The group provides assistance year-round for urgent and critical, but not chronic needs, and meets socially at least twice a year to learn more about our community, meet new friends, and support causes that inspire them.
