Joe Van Hecke is also a supporter and partner for Act of Giving, a Seattle based nonprofit. Act of Giving has raised over $320,000 in grant funding since its founding in 2003. Act of Giving has four committees who work independently to find nonprofits throughout the country that have the strongest impact in their communities. After deciding upon a nonprofit, each committee brings their decision to the partners table where they vote democratically on the nonprofit that will make the world a better place and is in need of a grant.
Act of Giving is strictly volunteer based and because of this, almost all of their efforts go to the grantees they decide upon. This process guarantees trust among the members and the partners and also creates an environment where every member of the process can be open with one another from the beginning to the end.
