March 10, 2021 May 19, 2021 Sept. 22, 2021 Nov. 10, 2021
Members may choose to serve on any of our standing committees.
The Grantmaking Committee is made up of 12-14 members and two co-chairs. We use a rigorous, three-phase review process, including site visits. The committee reviews proposals with final recommendations being made to the full Giving Circle membership for ratification. Grants are awarded quarterly.
The Partnering Committee conducts periodic follow-up and evaluation throughout the year, engaging grantees in an informal assessment of progress toward grant goals and objectives. Grantees complete a year-end evaluation of grant outcomes.
The Communications Committee is responsible for the content of media releases, our website, our social media profiles, and other literature.
The Membership Committee is responsible for the recruitment and retention of members. They maintain ongoing contact with members, creating and maintaining open lines of communication.
