The Women's Giving Circle of the Kitsap Peninsula
We empower women to collectively fund grants that make an impact in our community.
The Women’s Giving Circle of the Kitsap Peninsula promotes philanthropy among women of all generations. Our grants support programs that uplift women and/or children in our community.
We are a group of socially-minded women with a deep desire to help our community, and we would love for you to join us! We bring women together for a few fun and meaningful gatherings each year where we can enjoy each other’s company, hear interesting presentations, and jointly decide which local nonprofits we want to help.
Membership in the women's giving circle is $1,000 per year.
Membership gives an individual or a group the right to vote in the annual grants selection process. One can become an individual member and have one vote. The annual membership fee of $1,000 can be a one-time payment, or one can choose to pay in installments over the year. One can choose to partner with one other person, and each pays $500 for one membership and one vote. One can join a group of up to four members and pay $250. Together, this group will decide how their membership will vote, and they will have one vote in the grant decision process. Contact Lillian Xie at the Kitsap Community Foundation, firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask to be placed in a group. She will tell you about your partners.
