What is a Giving Circle?
A Giving Circle is participatory philanthropy. Groups of individuals get together to donate money or time to a pooled fund and decide as a group to which charity they will give. They also work to increase their awareness of issues related to the cause they choose. Some Giving Circles volunteer their time and skills to support local causes in addition to donating funds.
Want to give back, but don’t know where to start?
Anyone can become a committed and strategic giver. If you don’t feel you have sufficient funds or time to affect change on your own, a Giving Circle helps emerging philanthropists contribute generously to deserving nonprofits.
How does it work? It’s simple.
- Create your circle. We can help you put a group of like minded people together!
- Pick a cause. Assess deserving nonprofits and vote as a group.
- Decide collectively the amount of time and/or money members feel they can comfortably donate.
