Giving circles are another way to be philanthropic
Giving circles are a unique giving vehicle that can require as little as $5, engage a group in their community and have a big impact. Giving circles are made up of individuals (of any ages) who pool their dollars, choose a giving area or issue, learn about the issue and decide where to direct their collective gift. The circles are an opportunity for community members to learn more about the concerns in their communities and solutions for effective giving as well as a chance for individuals to be social, spend time discussing important issues and to hear from knowledgeable people.
