Inspire Giving provides a $10,000 grant every year out of it's endowment fund to a local nonprofit. Inspire Giving also provides in-kind services, donations, and support to the nonprofit throughout the year. We also support other local nonprofits via volunteer days which are open to our donors. In the past 11 years Inspire Giving has supported 11 non-profits through $125,000 in grants and over $1,600,000 in in-kind support and services! 

Inspire Giving has a unique process to select its annual grant recipient. If you donate $25 or more in the first six months of 2022 you will have the opportunity to vote on the priority giving area and the nonprofit finalists for 2023. If you'd like to stay connected, you can follow us on social media (Facebook and Twitter) and sign-up for our newsletter. With your support we truly live our motto: A Little is Enough, if Enough People Do It!

Our 2022 Inspire Giving grant recipient is Saint John's Program for Real Change. The Inspire Giving team will be working to successfully coach, train, and mentor the women of Saint john's to prepare them for employment and to have a successful career.
