Eleven Nonprofits Earn Giving Circle Grants

Reston's Giving Circle of HOPE will give $5,000 awards to area orgnaizations.

Reston's Giving Circle of HOPE announced it will give $55,000 to 11 area nonprofits in the upcoming year's grant cycle.

Receiving the $5,000 grants:  Alternative House, Computer C.O.R.E., Friends of Guest House, GRACE Ministries, Herndon-Reston FISH, Literacy Council of NoVa, Manassas Midwifery, NoVa Therapeutic Riding Program, OAR, Packaged with Care, and Stroke Comeback Center.

This is the ninth grant cycle for the Giving Circle of HOPE, a Reston-based group of more than 100 members that was founded in 2004 to promote volunteerism and philanthropy. 

Members seek to make a difference in the community by contributing their time, talents and money to projects which encourage self-sufficiency and well-being among people in need in Northern Virginia.

Since its inception, the Giving Circle has given out over $525,000 through the Grant program, Empty Bowls and Gifts That Give Hope.

 A celebration to honor the nonprofit partners will be held in early 2013.

Time to rethink the giving! Just because they get "air time" doesn't mean they deserve money!
