Step by Step

  1. The Giving Group: Set up a credit card payment. We’ve made it possible to make your quarterly donation by credit card. Click here to set up a profile with The Giving Group, a local nonprofit that supports giving circles in making group giving easier.

  2. Complete your membership form.

    Submit your participation agreement, committing to the group for a year of giving, here. We will also send you a reminder email once you’ve completed step 1 to complete the membership form.

  3. Submit an organization for consideration, if you are interested in that quarters topic.

    Every 3 months we’ll ask members to submit a nonprofit organization (which meets the eligibility requirements) they would like to see funded. All organizations submitted will be reviewed for nonprofit status and eligibility before being put into the proverbial hat. The leadership team will do a random drawing, on FB Live, to select the 3 organizations for the whole membership to vote on at our quarterly meeting.

  4. Show up for 1 hour every 3 months.

    Come prepared to listen and learn about 3 amazing organizations submitted by your fellow philanthropists. If you can’t make the meeting, don’t worry! You can make your donation by credit card or mail your check.

    Speaker Guidelines: If your organization is one of the 3 chosen, you will be asked to provide a brief (less than 5 minute) presentation to the membership, followed by a Q&A. (The nominator of the organization submitted must be the one to make the presentation. All members are welcome to research the organizations before the meeting, if they so choose.) Check out the full speaker guidelines here.

  5. Vote.

    Members vote on which nonprofit organization to support. The nonprofit that receives the most votes will be awarded the full donation from that meeting (our goal is $100 from each of the 100 women = $10,000), the more members the greater the impact!
