"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." ~ Sir Winston Churchill




What began as a dinner of six women discussing the plight of these homeless students resulted in a Giving Circle. Giving Circles enable friends and acquaintances to pool donations in an enjoyable social setting. Bellingham Giving Circle is open to anyone interested.

Giving Circle's participants make collective funding decisions and become more involved in the giving process than simply writing a check to a favorite charity (though we certainly support that too!). By donating time and/or money, Giving Circle participants find they have a deeper and better experience and because they are involved in the decision making feel they achieve more meaningful giving.
