The Night of a Thousand Dinner Parties

Help us kick off our Matching Gifts Month with The Night of a Thousand Dinner Parties!

On June 10, people from across the country will be having cookouts, cocktail parties, pizza bashes, wine and cheese gatherings, or the like to bring people together for one common goal: to end poverty.




Invite your friends, family, colleagues, or neighbors to dinner. At home or at a restaurant, fancy or casual, take-out or home-cooked, a small gathering or a block party – any kind of dinner you want to host!

At dinner, ask your guests to make a donation to A Wider Circle. Because June is our Matching Gifts Month, their donation – however much they choose – will be doubled.

Finally, join us online at 8:00pm EST for a Facebook Live conversation about the role you can play in the future of A Wider Circle. Together, on this night, we can take a large step forward in the movement to end poverty.
