GCH Group
GCH logoThe Giving Circle of HOPE is a chapter of the 100 Who Care Alliance, an organization of over 650 giving circles making an impact in local communities throughout the world. Our mission is to create a community of givers that give money, time and support to worthy Northern Virginia 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.

The Giving Circle of HOPE is an all-volunteer group of women and men that awards grants, to local nonprofits with budgets under $1 million. The organization awards 4 grants annually, via a collective giving process. Non-profits are nominated by members; grants are awarded, by majority vote, to one organization at each quarterly meeting.

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.
