Giving2Grow acts as an intermediary between donors and service providers. We endeavor to achieve our mission by supporting local organizations that already have the skill and knowledge and commitment to address childhood hunger and food security.
Members are encouraged to work on G2G committees, which will be responsible for growing our membership, planning our two annual meetings, reading grants, making site visits, etc.
In addition, G2G members are encouraged to get personally involved with the organizations we support with our grants. This is a common outcome of giving circles–increased awareness of one’s community and the opportunity to make a deeper, more personal contribution on a local level.
Too busy right now? Not to worry. Once you have paid your $500 membership, there is no pressure to join a committee or attend a single meeting. You can still exercise your vote (or not) to help select who receives G2G funding.
In short: membership money in, grant money out–every year.
Information about the 2019 grant application process will be posted soon. To get a sense of the expected timeline, review the information below.
Any local non-profit organization that meets our granting criteria, deadline and mission can submit a grant application. G2G members on the Grant Committee will review all applications and pre-select the best applicants. G2G members will then visit the selected applicants to better understand what services they provide that support G2G’s mission. Members of the Grant and Site Visit Committees and the G2G Board then meet to discuss the applicants and will then make recommendations to the entire membership, via the annual Ballot. Every paid member will receive an equal vote to determine which applicants will receive funding that year.
