Our mission is to help people in need by supporting local nonprofits through the pooled resources of generous women.
“Teach them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.”
Community Purse is a giving circle of approximately 100 women who meet to pool donations of $100 each to give $10,000 to a charity that serves people in the local area. Our members come from different age groups, churches, and socio-economic backgrounds, but we all share a desire to be a blessing and to benefit our local communities.
Our charities are nominated by our members and serve people who are struggling with domestic violence, poverty, college readiness, addiction, health issues and more. Our concise one-hour meetings are held four times a year, in February, May, August and November.
At each meeting, three charities from our nominated charity list present their story. Members vote and one charity is selected to receive the collection of funds, which have been written directly to the charity. At our following meeting, the selected charity comes back to share how the donation benefited our local community. Learn more about How It Works.
We always welcome new members!
