Fall Great Hearts Award!

Sep 01, 2021 -

Quarterly, Great Hearts hosts a grant event through our giving circle. We ask our community members to nominate nonprofit causes and then recommend the organizations that will receive grants. By using a process that combines the experience and expertise of community members, we are able to identify local groups that would benefit from the funding. 


Throughout August, Great Hearts Community members nominated causes they support and deeply care about. Sixteen nonprofits were recommended. Some of the organizations are Great Hearts member favorites. Others have been nominated for the first time. Thank you to everyone who participated! 


Our giving circle is now hosting a Great Hearts Award to support the nominated causes. A total of $10,000 in grants is available to be awarded with your help. 



Here's how it works:      

1) Tap on the Award Clicklet to help award a grant.      

2) Select causes from the list that you would like the Great Hearts to support. 

3) By selecting these causes, you'll be recommending that the Great Hearts giving circle give a $5 grant to each one. 

4) You may also suggest other nonprofit causes that you support. Each cause you suggest will also receive a $5 grant.  

5) Up to $1,000 will be granted to each organization. 

5) Grants will be used by the organizations to provide programs and services.      

6) The Great Hearts Award period ends on September 15, 2021, or when $ 10,000 has been awarded.  



Thanks for participating. We appreciate your recommendations. The next Great Hearts Award will begin on November 30th.
