2018 High School Giving Circle Grants

Two 2018 Community Foundation High School Giving Circles each recommended $10,000 in grants to the following nonprofit organizations. The Circles were funded by Community Foundation donors who encourage young people in our community to learn about philanthropy. The 2018 High School Giving Circles were facilitated by nonprofit professional, Karen Senger.  Students from area high schools met once a week for 10 weeks to learn about philanthropy, nonprofits, and needs in our community. They interviewed nonprofit organizations working in areas that interested them and in the penultimate meeting came to consensus within their circle for the following grants.
