On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, the members of LIFT (Locally Impacting the Future Together) Giving Circle presented a collective donation of $18,500 to Steps to End Domestic Violence (Steps)’s Children’s Program. Steps offers a wide range of support to families experiencing domestic violence. LIFT’s donation will allow Steps to restore programs that had been cut from its Children’s Program, including playgroups which help children witnessing domestic violence process and understand their feelings. 

LIFT Giving Circle’s founders, Alexandra (Alexa) Clauss and Shireen Hart , are proud to share that through its members, LIFT has raised over $41,000 for local organizations in its first two years. Alexa and Shireen founded LIFT Giving Circle in 2017 because they wanted to harness the generosity and energy of the women in their community to help local groups with their missions. LIFT has provided funding to The Janet S. Munt Family Room, KidSafe Collaborative, Outright Vermont, and Steps to End Domestic Violence.
