Hestia Women's Giving Circle

The Hestia Women's Giving Circle is a group of women from Emmet and Charlevoix Counties whose mission is to “promote the economic self-sufficiency and well-being of women and girls.” The group strives to educate its members and the general public about community needs and encourages women and girls to engage in active philanthropy. Giving circle members contribute annually to a donor advised fund held at the Community Foundation. Read more:  www.hestiacircle.org
