Why Complete the Circle? Because we have more in common that unites us than divides us. The image of the circle is the perfect illustration for the ancient concept of union, the whole. It’s symbolic for ties that bind, the unbroken link. In a circle we can draw energy and strength knowing we are not alone. Someone has your back.


Complete the Circle creates a place where like-minded individuals can come together to unite in our humanity, to give gratitude for the grace received through the act of giving. Complete the Circle creates a space where friends, family – all donors motivated by love and compassion – can give generously for charitable causes of all stripes.


Tom Butt is the founder of Complete the Circle. How he arrived at its creation on the heels of a 30-year career in Information Technology has far less to do with his knowledge of the left-brain activities of computer systems than it has with that living organ located slightly left of the breastbone: his heart. Tom is a man of faith. His dream is to soften the focus on our differences by celebrating our points of departure and honoring our shared values.


Call it Karma, the Mosaic Law, the Five Pillars, The Way or the Trinity. No matter what your orientation, whether through an organized creed or an individual practice of spiritual beliefs, all are united in seeking meaning in life through connection with others, in completing the circle.


“The world is a beautiful place when we come together”
