There are five grant review committees, consisting of members that are responsible for review of grant applications and site visits with applicants. Each grant applicant organization is thoroughly reviewed by the committees. Each committee then makes recommendations of finalists to the Board of Directors. Members  vote  at the annual meeting to determine the nonprofits selected for grants. These committees meet mid-summer through September. The committees are Arts & Culture, Education, Environment,  Health & Recreation, and Family. New members may indicate their preference for committee assignments when completing the Member Registration/Donation form.  Current members may sign up to participate on a Grant Review Committee in the Member Only Area.
