Events

Every year we host events for our members, grantees and donors.  

Please see a list of our upcoming events below.

Annual Reception

June 24, 2020

Date

Time

5:30pm - 7:30pm

We are watching the coronavirus precautions in effect.  We don't know yet if the reception will be held but will make a decision closer to June 24.

Our annual meeting is the highlight of the year.  It's a party with several important functions.  Members have a chance to mingle and are encouraged to bring a friend who is interested in learning more about our Circle.  During a short business portion, we hear the Treasurer's report, the Membership report, and elect officers for the coming year.  Grantees attend to accept their checks and tell the group about their programs.  The energy of women helping other women through philanthropy and fellowship is inspiring!

For the incredible ninth time since we began having a reception in 2006, sujo Offield will be our host for the evening.

All members receive an invitation in the mail.  If you are not yet a member and would like to attend, please contact us at INFO@hestiacircle.org

Time to be announced

In March the Grant Committee Chairs announce a call for grants and invite members to serve on the grant review committee.  In addition to each person reading and evaluating the applications on their own, there are two in-person meetings to discuss the applications which generally occur in May.

 

In 2020 we have $70,000 to invest in projects that meet our mission.  This will bring our total granted to over $500,000!

 

The Grant Co-Chairs, Miriam Hollar and Martha Lancaster, will be sending an email inviting the members to serve.  You can be on the committee by replying to that email or writing to them at INFO@hestiacircle.org
