We’re a group of Santa Fe women changing how giving works.
Founded in 2008, Hestia Santa Fe is a giving circle comprised of dedicated women who live in or have a connection with Santa Fe, New Mexico. We have granted nearly $1MM to local nonprofit organizations. Our goal is to increase the high school graduation rate by supporting middle schoolers.
The critical factors that make Hestia successful as a giving circle are: mutual respect, trust, transparency, collaboration, and open dialogue.
We grow the Fund in an organic way, encouraging the current membership to invite friends and acquaintances to come to join us in our giving.
The group uses the name of Hestia, the Greek goddess of the hearth.
