Status Update for DVWS Giving Circle 2017-2018


The 2017-2018 DVWS Giving Circle grand total stands at $9,796 as of January 5th at 6:30PM.

Not only does this leave us with no Giving Circle Fund this year (so far), it represents a shortfall to filling the $10,000 gap in our operating budget (for comparison, last year we had donations of almost $30,000.)

We can change that!  Join today with a gift of any amount. Your support will make a difference!
