Giving Circle of HOPE

Giving Together. Achieving More.

GCH Group
The mission of the Giving Circle of HOPE is to create a community of givers that give money, time and support to worthy, well-researched and vetted nonprofits so they may provide services to those in need. We amplify our giving by coming together and magnify the impact of the nonprofits we support by creating greater awareness of their programs.

GCH logoThe Giving Circle of HOPE is an all-volunteer organization that awards project and capacity building grants to local nonprofits with budgets under $1 million in the areas of health, mental health, aging and poverty relief.

In addition to grant making, the Giving Circle of HOPE organizes several fundraisers annually such as Empty Bowls for hunger relief and Together We Give which invites the community to participate in collective giving. There is also a Kids’ Club Service Program for homeless children and support for nonprofits serving girls through the Break the Cycle Endowment Fund.

Since its founding in 2004, the Giving Circle of HOPE has invested more than $1,350,000 in the Northern Virginia community through grant making, fundraising and service programs.
