The June Great Hearts Award ❤️

Jun 01, 2022 -

Summer is known for sunshine and relaxation. There are lazy days at the beach and adventures like going off to camp. It is a season filled with extra time with our friends, families, and pets. Summer also brings deep needs, challenges, and hardships for many. Whether it's food insecurity for children no longer in classes, the crushing grief over the death of a loved one, or danger in many forms.  


In June, Great Hearts is helping people and animals in need by supporting nineteen causes that are making a difference through their programs and services. All the organizations have been involved with Great Hearts for a long time and have become dear friends of our community. Causes we love.️  


Many of the nominated groups are operated completely by volunteers. People who would likely say that they are ordinary. In fact, these volunteers are extraordinary in the ways they come together to teach, heal, rescue, and uplift. 


A total of $10,000 in grants is available to be awarded. By voting, you help select which of the nonprofits our giving circle supports. Each vote given turns into a $5 grant.

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