Your commitment as a member of The Emerald Circle can range from simply providing financial support for scholarships to active participation in events, service projects and fundraising. All members receive a special Emerald Circle lapel pin and personal invitations to events. Members also have the opportunity to serve on the executive committee and are kept up to date on news and events through The Emerald Circle’s online newsletter and the Council’s periodic publication, The Golden Link. Those who donate $250 or more are acknowledged in Connections, a publication for GSSJC donors.
