Giving Circle of HOPE Disperses $45K in Grants

Reston’s Giving Circle of HOPE has given out $45,000 to support three local organizations in its 2020 grant cycle.

The non-profit organization awarded the grants to support organizations that are meeting “critical community needs amidst the financial and operational challenges of a pandemic,” according to an announcement.

The following organizations received grants:

Food Pantry: Dulles South Food Pantry, providing nutritious food and personal supplies to those in need in the Dulles South and surrounding areas

Rental Assistance: Herndon-Reston FISH, providing help to Northern Virginians in short-term financial crisis with rental assistance, paying utilities, and other needs

Emerging Needs: Culmore Clinic, offering low-cost services to patients in the Culmore-Bailey’s Crossroads community who would not otherwise have access to any kind of medical care

Giving Circle of HOPE is a grassroots organization that started in 2004 to support volunteerism and philanthropy. So far, the organization has dispersed $1 million with 159 grants to 66 nonprofit organizations, according to a company release.
