It's the grant-making time of year again!  Proposals come in from local nonprofits and over 100 volunteers help us review each request and decide where your charitable dollars will have the most impact.

Our Young Philanthropist students will hold their annual fundraising benefit at Oxygen Fitness on Sunday, February 8th. We have Spinning at 9:30am and Yoga at 10:30am and the suggested donation is $50 per class. Join us!
