About Us

Turning Interest Into Action

The co-founder, Fatima, wanted to start a giving circle that reflected her values, identity, and passions.

The 12 founding members represent a wide range of talents, life experiences, passions, and abilities. Just as our founding members reflect a range of identities, we seek that in our membership. 

Collective 365 is a group of individuals coming together to use their talent, time, resources, and passion to invest in their community. The voting members of the Collective pay a yearly investment of $100 (or $50). The members’ investments are used to support the community grants. Each full-paying member has a vote on how the grant money is awarded. Those who are unable to make a financial investment are encouraged to join as general members.


During the year the members attend educational & networking events to become informed and engaged community members. The top grantee applicants and community members will be invited to the Community Brunch in April. The Community Brunch is an opportunity to celebrate all grantee applicants and award funds to applicants.
