Equal Knocks circle awards first grant

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The Equal Knocks Giving Circle, a group of 12 women in Durham and Chapel Hill, recently made its first donation, contributing $1,925 to the Modest Needs Foundation, at modestneeds.org.

Founded in 2002 in New York City, Modest Needs works to break the cycle of poverty before it begins by helping otherwise financially self-sufficient individuals and families meet short-term or emergency expenses.

The Equal Knocks Giving Circle intends to award gifts twice each year, at or about the spring and autumn equinoxes, to nonprofit organizations that particularly benefit women and girls.
