Whether you have a lot of time or very little, the Giving Circle of HOPE makes it easy to be involved.
If you contribute money to our grant fund, you may be assured that every dollar will benefit people in need. We encourage you to serve on the Grants Sub-Circle, if time permits, to review grant applications in depth and learn the most about local needs and proposed solutions. All members, of course, receive application summaries and those contributing a minimum of $415 have the opportunity to vote on grants. Become a Member.
If you contribute time as a volunteer, you will “get” more than you “give.” One of our Service Programs is sure to touch your heart: Kids’ Club or Flashes of Hope. The long tenure of our volunteer teams is a testament to how rewarding it is to read or craft with shelter kids or to bring joy through photo shoots in hospitals. Many of our members choose to volunteer with one of our Nonprofit Partners and we are pleased to facilitate those connections, too!
Our signature spring event, Empty Bowls, provides the ultimate “fun with a purpose” experience and raises much-needed funds for hunger relief. Imagine the energy of 600 guests mingling with friends in a beautiful setting, selecting handcrafted bowls and enjoying a delicious meal, being entertained and educated…all while advocating for their less-fortunate neighbors!
There is a place for you in the Giving Circle of HOPE!
