What is a Giving Circle?

A Giving Circle is a group of people who give to a pooled fund and decide together where to give. Giving Circles allow members to learn more about giving and have greater impact on causes they care about.

Why a Giving Circle?

» Pooled donations and creativity for a greater impact
» Collective giving decisions draw participants into the giving process
» Fun and more meaningful giving experience
» Safe environment for learning and making deeper connections
» Accessible to all incomes and ages
