Congratulations to our 2020 Grantees!
Uncertain times call for certain action, and this year is the epitome of an uncertain time.
Many Northern Virginia nonprofits found themselves stretched thin, asked to do more with less. Pandemic conditions made critical fundraising events impossible. In response to this crisis, Giving Circle of Hope quickly launched the Be One of the Helpers campaign.
Foregoing our usual grant application process in favor of a condensed high-impact online collective giving event, GCH members and donors contributed $45,000 to this campaign. Contributors cast votes to select one organization in each of 3 helping categories--Food Pantry, Rental Assistance, and Emerging Needs.
Congratulations to the 3 worthy organizations, below; each will receive a $15,000 grant to support those in the community disproportionately affected by the pandemic.
FOOD PANTRY grantee: Dulles South Food Pantry
RENTAL ASSISTANCE grantee: Herndon-Reston FISH
EMERGING NEEDS grantee: Culmore Clinic
