We are a group of members who make a minimum gift of $150 annually. Each member nominates 1 charity for funding annually. Member nominations are placed into a “fish bowl” and one charity from each category will be nominated for funding each year. Each charity is invited to present their case for support to the Circle of Giving members at an annual event.  Members will then vote and select one charity for funding who will receive in 2020 a grant of $20,000; runner up nominees will be given a smaller award.  The 150 Circle of Giving is a Fund at the Community Foundation. The Community Foundation is a Section 501 (c) 3 nonprofit. Your gift may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
