The “Site Visit” is the cornerstone of Hestia’s grant funding process. For each Site Visit, three to five Hestians gather to observe a program under consideration for funding. During the visit, Hestia members have an opportunity to get to know programs in a profoundly personal way. These visits form the core of communication between grant partners and Hestia members. Considered the “heart and soul” of Hestia, Site Visits foster a sense of collaboration and camaraderie among Hestia members and between Hestians and the greater Santa Fe community.
