Winter: Grant Kickoff Meeting -  February 9, 2021
With the annual theme identified, our grants committee pulls together resources around the topic and holds a kickoff meeting for all members (and anyone interested in learning more) to discuss nonprofits that are working to improve conditions in this area. This is an inspirational/brainstorm session that refreshes our passion for the grant cycle, and we can learn about where people have been inspired around the annual theme. Participants often come out of this meeting with a renewed excitement over finding a worthy nonprofit and proposing a grant on their behalf.

Spring: Grant Reveal Event - April 24, 2021
Once the votes are in the executive committee brings us together for a  casual event to toast the winners. This is always a fun celebration. For 2020 we are celebrating grantees with a member hosted virtual wine tasting. Contact us for details!

Summer: Grant Celebration Event - TBD
Jean at the Summer eventEvery summer we gather in Seattle with the year's grantees to celebrate them, the work they do, and how Act of Giving's grants will help their work. Light food and drinks are provided. It's a fun time to meet new people and learn about great work being done by inspiring organizations.

The summer event also offers Act of Giving members, family, friends and guests an opportunity to connect with each other. Being able to share the Act of Giving mission and encourage participation is an important aspect of the event. If you would like an invitation, email info@actofgiving.org

Fall: Annual Meeting - October 18, 2020 
General Info Session – We share the history of Act of Giving and the current grant process. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and get information about joining. Following the info session, this part of the meeting provides the chance to discuss the funding available for the next grant cycle and then brainstorm potential themes. The Annual Meeting has historically been a day of inspiration as we hear about all the potential areas of need in our world and have open discussions around where our donation could have a big impact. Every two years, a new Executive Committee is voted into office at the annual meeting. This year's event will be hosted on Zoom.
