With the combined power of the generous women in our group, we can improve our community and the lives of those who live here with us. Together we decide where to give money, and in doing so, learn about our community and about philanthropy in general.
Members of the Anacortes Giving Circle donate $365 (or any amount that is meaningful to them), a committee reviews proposals from area nonprofits and selects finalists to present to the whole membership, and then each member votes to determine which organizations receive funding.
- More bang for your buck! Most of us can't give a large gift of our own.
- It's fun with a purpose.
- Learn about the pressing issues in our community, and about groups out there doing good work.
