Be a part of the change! Giving circles are groups of individuals who pool their money and decide together who to grant it to. They are often formed by friends or like-minded individuals as a way to be more engaged in the giving process and to increase their knowledge of philanthropy, nonprofits and the needs in their community.
There are giving circles across the country, ranging from small groups of friends raising $100 around the kitchen table to high-powered groups with annual membership fees of over $10,000. As far as we know, Giving2Grow is the first grassroots giving circle in the Pittsburgh area!
