HOPE in Motion: Focus on education, service and social experiences

Get involved in service and educational events that expand your mind and inspire your soul. Join in the fun and see how our investments make a difference in the lives of others.

Mingles are social events that enable members to stay informed about Giving Circle of HOPE activities and allow time for relationship building. They are like our previous Quarterly Meetings but twice the fun!

On March 29, join us and bring a guest to this happy hour mingle … and the parking is free. Catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Discover what the Giving Circle of HOPE is and what we’re up to this year.
Time: 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

A New Way To Membership with Monthly Contributions

We offer a great new way to make a contribution to the Giving Circle of HOPE with automatic monthly donations.

Each month the amount you specify will be charged automatically to the credit card you provide. This option allows you to contribute throughout the year. It also gives us a better sense of the number of grants we will be able to support earlier in the grant review process. Before you know it, you’ll be a full voting member!
