The Associates Board of Sarah’s Circle brings in a younger demographic of donors, and creates strong ties with young professionals looking to make a meaningful impact in the community. By providing leadership opportunities through volunteerism and fundraising events, members of the Associates Board will be connected to the mission of Sarah’s Circle and promote overall support.
