Join us for lunch on Wednesday, November 1st at 11:30 AM at the Lehighton American Legion Post #314.
20/20 Circle members and guests will hear from area nonprofit organizations (finalists to be announced) 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 $4,000 this year.
Who Are the Three Nonprofits?
This year’s three 20/20 Circle grant finalists and their proposed projects are:

About the 20/20 Circle
The 20/20 Circle brings individuals and businesses together to amplify their community impact by pooling their philanthropic funds. Members make a one-time contribution of $1,000 (payable over up to four years) to the 20/20 Circle Fund, which is invested and grows over time. Annually, members gather to learn about promising organizations and projects in Carbon County and collectively decide which project to support through a group vote (one vote per membership).
Not a 20/20 Circle Member?
No problem! Attend to learn about the Carbon County Community Foundation, 20/20 Circle, and our presenting nonprofits. Pledge membership to the 20/20 Circle by the end of the day on November 1st and submit your first vote this year!
