Join BOND to Learn, Give, and Connect!

We would like for you to consider joining Branching Out In New Directions (BOND).
We are beginning our sixth year (2012-2014) as a Twin Cities nonprofit membership organization, and we are very proud of our accomplishments.
Our members' activities have enabled us to enhance the lives of local scholarship recipients and engage in valuable community service projects. Through December 2012, we have donated $78,100.15, primarily through BOND's Scholarship Fund, but also in support of mainstay organizations such as food banks and career development services.  These funds are raised through very modest contributions built into BOND's many member activities.
BOND volunteers also contribute their time and talent to support community needs. Working with public schools, several dozen BOND volunteers assist in staffing creative early childhood development programs serving children in needy families. Helping families celebrate holidays annually by assembling gift baskets is another community service focus.
We invite you not only to join, but to become an active participant in our activities. You can participate in study groups, book review groups, bridge, lunch and dinner groups, fundraising activities, and many other activities in the company of friendly and interesting women. You are welcome to attend Board meetings and share your ideas and interests.
On this website you will find information about our study groups and other activities, as well as a member interest questionnaire. We hope you will get involved and attend as many programs as you can.
We look forward to meeting you at our events in the near future. Please e-mail us if you have any questions or would like a member registration form sent to you in the mail.
