Giving Circle of Hope - May 2013On Tuesday, May 21, LCNV and 10 other local nonprofits were honored at the Giving Circle of HOPE‘s Grantee Celebration and Volunteer Recognition Event. The Giving Circle of HOPE helps people in need in Northern Virginia by issuing annual grants, providing direct service through ongoing service programs, and hosting community events to benefit nonprofit partners. The Giving Circle of HOPE was founded in January 2004 with four members. Since then, membership has grown to 100+ individuals.

The Giving Circle of HOPE accepts grant applications in August. All applications are reviewed by the grant sub-circle, and liaisons from this sub-circle conduct site visits with the top contenders. Applications are then summarized and forwarded to the general membership for voting at the quarterly meeting in November. This year, the Giving Circle of HOPE reviewed 36 applications! LCNV is honored that the Giving Circle of HOPE  chose to contribute to its Family Learning Program, which provides beginning English language and literacy instruction to immigrant parents and caregivers while providing their children with an opportunity to work on guided reading and writing activities or their homework.
