Caboodle Giving Circle

A bunch of people making change

What is Caboodle?

CBF Heartland’s Endowment Board established a Giving Circle in 2010.  The name changed to Caboodle in 2015 to represent our intent to gather a bunch of people – a “caboodle” – together in order to inspire positive change in the region.  With full 100-member participation, Caboodle’s collective gifts will be awarded in the form of one $5,000 grant.
