    The Moscow Women’s Giving Circle is excited to announce the 2019 Grant Cycle Request for Proposals.  We invite grant applications from any eligible nonprofit, school, or community organization serving Latah County.  Circle Members have selected the theme of Building Circles of Wellbeing as the funding focus of 2019.  We welcome grant applications now through February 28, 2019.
    Building circles of well-being can take many forms. Some circles may be formed by organizations investing in collaborations that bring together two or more groups for projects that foster meaningful relationships while providing services and enrichment to our community. Other circles may be formed by an organization connecting various parts of our Latah County community, be it diverse geographic locations, multiple generations, or new arrivals with established residents. Still other circles will be created by providing programs that ensure an individual’s safety, health, or enrichment (with an emphasis on culture and the arts).
    The Giving Circle’s application is a short, two-page proposal, designed to make applying easy.  Applications are available in PDF form at www.mosocwgivingcircle.com (download the form at the bottom of the home page), and on our Facebook Page, @MoscowGivingCircle.  We welcome questions and are happy to offer advice to potential applicants via email at givingcirclemoscow@gmail.com or through Facebook Messenger.
    About the Circle
    Now in its 12th year of philanthropy, the Moscow Women’s Giving Circle is a group of community-minded women who collectively pool their money to support the vital nonprofits that make Moscow and Latah County so vibrant.  All current members vote to determine where funds are given, and grants are made through our fiscal sponsor, the Latah County Community Foundation.
    We invite all community members to our Winter Gathering on Thursday, January 31, at 7pm in the Great Room of the 1912 Center.  It’s an inspiring evening of fellowship and community, with stories of success from last year’s grantees.  Snacks and a no-host bar will be provided.
    The Circle is a wonderful way to celebrate philanthropy, community, and friendship.  All community members are welcome to join, and the Circle accepts donations from any community member or business.  For more information, or to become a member, please visit moscowgivingcircle.org or contact us via email at givingcirclemoscow@gmail.com and plan to attend the winter gathering.
