Local people giving together to make a difference in our community since 1977.

It's the grant-making time of year again!  We received 76 proposals from local nonprofits, requesting over $1.1 million.  Our 100 volunteers help us review each request and decide where our donors' charitable dollars will have the most impact.

On January 22nd we hosted 125 guests at our annual meeting reception at Waveny House. Guests enjoyed our inspirational keynote speaker Emily Tow Jackson and we welcomed our 2015 Board members.
