Giving Circles can be a very fulfilling way to meet new individuals who share your interests and values and leverage your own giving. We support various groups who give together under an agreed upon set of criteria.
Many of these Giving Circles are open to accepting new members. A member of our Development team can help you learn more about Giving Circles and community funds.
