Event Details

Giving Circles... shared giving... collective philanthropy...Whatever we call it, the act of giving together is a flexible, powerful, and meaningful approach to philanthropy and community building. Shared giving democratizes philanthropy, allowing "everyday givers" of all income levels to leverage their donations for greater impact and learning. Join Jessica Bearman for a dynamic conversation on this DIY approach to philanthropy. The webinar will introduce giving circles and their impact on donors and communities, explore their many forms, and identify ways that consultants to grantmakers interact with them - from supporting their development to helping them be most effective in their giving.

Non-Members:  $35
