Giving Circles for Greater Community Impact
A collective giving approach to philanthropy, often translated into giving circles, brings people together to focus on community needs and community-driven solutions.
When like-minded givers come together to discuss community needs and support them with their donations, time, and other resources, a giving circle is born. Over the past two decades, the giving circle movement in the United States has grown to more than 2,000 giving circles made up of 150,000 people helping to donate nearly $1.3 billion. Does this collaborative approach to philanthropy and addressing broader social concerns sound like the right giving opportunity for you? In a podcast released January 5, 2022, Michael Gordon Voss, publisher of Stanford Social Innovation Review, speaks with Sara Lomelin, CEO of Philanthropy Together, and Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis donor Mary Jovanovich of Schwab Charitable about how this model for giving works and how individuals and nonprofits can boost the power of collective giving.
