Congratulations to the first year for the Newman’s Own Foundation Alumni Giving Circle with 13 alumni participating. The group was allocated $25,000 for distribution. Working virtually and communicating online, the group decided on two organizations:
- $5,000 to Tiwale (a Malawi based organization that empowers women)
- $20,000 to Running Start (a nonpartisan nonprofit that trains young women to run for political office)
The group worked hard from December 2017 to August 2018 and went through a thoughtful and collaborative grants making process.
100% would participate again.
100% would recommend participation in the Giving Circle to other Alumni.
I love the group dynamics. Our pool of applicants were diverse because of the groups experiences and connections so vast! I loved this! I appreciate this space and I would love to participate and grow the program in an efficient way.
Goal: To provide an opportunity for Fellowship alumni to do greater good together by pooling resources, thoughts, and ideas, and to encourage camaraderie, conversation and socialization.
We are accepting the next round of Giving Circle volunteers in early 2019. More information to come!
