Circle of Giving Provides Serious Funding to The Foundation’s Giving Programs
The Circle of Giving was conceived to meet the growing need for annual support of key grant programs that greatly impact our community. The Circle is a group of like-minded individuals who commit at least a $5,000 (tax-deductible) gift annually to help expand the impact of the Whitefish Community Foundation’s Community Grant programs.
It is thanks to our generous donors that make up the Circle of Giving that the Community Grant Program and the Great Fish Challenge have grown to be such necessary programs today benefitting our local nonprofits.
This past year, thanks to the generous support from our Circle, WCF awarded two major grants for $25,000 each in 2017, 30 Community Grants totaling $80,000, 45 matching grants in the Great Fish Challenge totaling more than $400,000, and numerous small grants to local nonprofits for urgent and unexpected needs.
The Circle of Giving is the backbone of the Community Foundation’s grant programs. It has grown to be a major resource for the Foundation to help address the critical needs of our nonprofits, our schools, and our community. Thank you for supporting the Circle of Giving.
Circle donors are invited to attend a Circle dinner each year. The 2018 Circle of Giving social is August 14, 2018.
Join us in the Circle of Giving and become a member of a group of unique and like-minded individuals willing to impact our community for the better.
