After the Learn team narrows the focus of the current topic, the Give team continues with the next step of our yearly cycle. The goal of the Give process is to determine the organizations and programs that best address the current topic, while remaining true to the Giving Circle’s mission and priorities.  In order to do this, the Give team analyzes grant applications, and presents findings to the board membership.  Board members vote to select the winning gift recipients.

Giving Circle priorities include:

  • Improving quality of life of the Seacoast

  • Serving the socio-economically underprivileged

  • Fostering independence and self-reliance

  • Addressing emerging needs and issues

  • Providing long-term solutions

  • Investing in the expansion of existing organizations rather than the creation of new ones
