What to expect
Each year, JWGF receives dozens of inquiries from prospective grantees. Those that fall within our guidelines go to the membership for evaluation, discussion and a voting session each December. Based on the vote, certain organizations will be asked to submit a full proposal. You are invited to join in lively discussions during an extensive review of the resulting proposals, including reading-group meetings, site visits and voting sessions.
We encourage your full participation, but understand that life is busy. Our process is designed so that every member has an equal voice in decision making, even if you are unable to participate in all or part of the review process. You are a valued member of the giving circle, with a voice and a vote, in whatever degree you are able to engage with us.
