About our Gift Process
The Giving Circle Gift Committee, comprised of member volunteers, develops gift recommendations for the Board and membership using a thorough and collaborative decision process. Our process results in strategic investments that make a real and lasting difference in the lives of children and their families. The Gift Committee collaborates with
...Community leaders and experts to better understand the barriers to children’s success and identify successful approaches for addressing those barriers.
...Non-profit agencies to identify gaps in essential human services, recognize opportunities for partnership and help establish programs to reach children and families who are not receiving needed services.
...Members to provide opportunities for them to comment on and learn about proposed gifts prior to final approval by the Giving Circle’s elected Board.
The Giving Circle of Alexandria pools and strategically invests 100% of its member’s contributions in new and existing community programs that help achieve our goal: Preparing Alexandria’s Children for Success. Priority is given to programs that address Parental Engagement, the strategy the Giving Circle has chosen to maximize the impact of its gifts.
