ATLANTA, GA – The Circle of Joy (COJ), a giving circle located in Decatur, GA, celebrated their 5th anniversary last month with over 50 guests at the Steelcase Showroom in Atlanta. COJ is a philanthropic organization under the umbrella of the Community Investment Network (CIN), a membership organization and resource for giving circles in communities of color. To date COJ has granted more than $15,000 and over 1,000 hours in community service to their grantees.

Attending the anniversary celebration were grantees Students Without Mothers, Pride for Parents and All Grown Up, along with members from fellow CIN giving circles Denver African American Philanthropists and Birmingham Change Fund.

COJ is currently hosting a crowdfunding campaign to raise $10,000 in celebration of their fifth year. Anyone who would like to contribute to this cause can visit here to make a donation.
