Grant Application
Past Gift Recipients

The Seacoast Women's Giving Circle was founded in April 2006 by a group of local women eager to use their skills and resources to address critical issues facing the Seacoast community.


After the Learn team narrows the focus of the current topic, the Give team continues with the next step of our yearly cycle. The goal of the Give process is to determine the organizations and programs that best address the current topic, while remaining true to the Giving Circle’s mission and priorities.  In order to do this, the Give team analyzes grant applications, and presents findings to the board membership.  Board members vote to select the winning gift recipients.

"Money alone does not garner the quality of life we all want. Your approach to learning about community issues—and to engage with and bring attention to critical community challenges and opportunities is key. You are role models—not only with your families and social circles—but in the broader community. You let others know that engagement and action is possible. By doing what you do, where you combine strategy and passion, you are creating important muscle memory for any issue our community faces."
