What is a Giving Circle?

A giving circle is a group of people with shared values that come together to make change. They pool their time and money, and decide as a circle where it should go. Their efforts, discussion, and collective gift transforms into community power, proactive change, and civic action. To learn more, visit WhatIsAGivingCircle.com.
