Winter: Grant Kickoff Meeting -  February 7, 2023 at 6:30pm (Hybrid Event)
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.

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.

We're meeting together in person this year, so all are welcome! If you would like an invitation, email We're excited to host this summer's event at the Sunset Bay Lodge at the Ballard Elks, which will be a beautiful opportunity to celebrate with our grantees.
