Membership

Giving Hope. Women's Giving Circle has two levels of membership allowing new members to join at a level at which they are most comfortable.  In addition to membership fees, we also encourage donations to our endowment, granting, and/or administrative funds.

In order to cover our administrative expenses and continue our level of granting, Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle has added a $25 administrative fee to the annual dues, beginning October 2015.  This administrative fee will help to cover Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle costs for use of the Canton Community Foundation's staff and resources.

Gold Membership: $1000 payable over a maximum of three years.  Following the third year, the annual renewal fee is $125 (which includes the administrative fee).  This membership level allows voting privileges.

Silver Membership: $300 payable over a maximum of two years.  Following the second year, the annual renewal fee is $125 (which includes the administrative fee).  This membership level allows voting privileges.

Patron:  Anyone who donates $100 or more to the Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle.  There are no voting privileges.

Membership and donations will continue to be divided among the endowment, immediate granting, and administrative costs as described in the Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle bylaws.
