The 300 Giving Circle Board of Directors
The 300 Giving Circle is dedicated to supporting causes important to the lesbian and gay community of western North Carolina. By banding together in a giving circle composed of lesbians, gays and our friends, we hope to positively impact our chronically under-funded LGBTQ organizations and programs, by expanding the resource base.

Our desire is that you will learn more about our work and see how The 300 can be instrumental in building our community. We feel that such a study will encourage you to join us in this important effort, an effort with the power to bind our community to a common purpose, while building our LGBTQ community's initiatives. Read about our efforts, talk to others involved and think about the power of banding together. Together we can nurture new ideas and support the mainstays of our community, all while presenting a positive image to all of Western North Carolina. Joining is as easy as one, two, three...and your $1,100 gift is tax-deductible.
Step One - JOIN
Joining is easy. Simply provide us with some information about yourself and your designated guest, and a non tax-deductible check for $150 made payable to "The 300 Society". You can email the information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the instructions viewable at the bottom of this page to download and use a membership application form in pdf format.
Or, if you'd prefer, just send the check and tell us your name, name of your guest, address, email address, preferred telephone number, birthday (yours and your guest's...no need for the year), your anniversary day and month, and mail to:
The 300 Society
P.O. Box 1524

The dues will be used to cover all 300 Society expenses so that 100% of your pledge will go to support the grantees.
