Join us for lunch on Thursday, November 10th at 11:30 AM at The Hofford Mill in Weissport!
20/20 Circle members and guests will hear from three area nonprofit organizations about the projects or programs they want to complete in the next year.
After the presentations, 20/20 Circle members will submit their votes for the organization they’d like to see receive the 20/20 Circle grant of $3,500 this year.
**The event is free to attend, but donations to help offset costs are always appreciated. You don’t need to be a 20/20 Circle member either, so if you’re interested in learning more, please join us and meet other members, the Foundation staff, and board members.
Who Are the Three Nonprofits?
This year’s three 20/20 Circle grant finalists and their proposed projects are:
- Behavioral Health Associates – Lego Club for the Intensive Social Skills Training (ISST) Program
Launch a Lego Club in Behavioral Health Associates’ ISST program to help students enhance their social skills, increase problem-solving, and improve STEAM outcomes.
- GCC Panther Valley Food Pantry – Community Food Pantry Cooling Unit
Replace the pantry’s refrigerate/freezer unit in order to continue offering more fresh fruits and vegetables and other foods requiring refrigeration to families in need in the Panther Valley School District.
- Summit Hill Heritage Center – Bring Live Music Back to the Center
Bring live music by local musicians back to the Summit Hill Heritage Center’s events in order to increase attendance and raise more funds to support the community center operations, keeping it a free or low-cost meeting space for the county.
About the 20/20 Circle
The 20/20 Circle Fund is made up of individuals and businesses working together to increase their impact in the community by pooling their philanthropic dollars. Members make a one-time contribution of $1,000 to the 20/20 Circle Fund, which is invested and grows year after year. 20/20 Circle members meet annually to hear from the most promising organizations and projects serving the Carbon County region and decide which project to fund as a group (one vote for each membership).
Not a 20/20 Circle Member?
That’s ok! You can still attend to learn more about the Carbon County Community Foundation, the 20/20 Circle, and our presenting nonprofits. Plus, if you pledge your membership to the 20/20 Circle before the end of the day on November 10th, you will be able to submit a vote this year for the nonprofit of your choice.
