Benefits of Collective Giving

There are many benefits to collective giving. In addition to multiplying individual gifts to achieve a greater impact, collective giving offers a variety of advantages for donors. Collective giving involves members in deciding what the needs are and where to direct our grants; it enriches the experience for all of us. We can target issues that are important our community.

People support what they help build. As donors decide how to distribute monies and are otherwise involved in the grant making process, they become more attuned to community needs and more invested in outcomes.

Independence

Giving circles maintain independence by not affiliating with any single nonprofit. Donors are free to explore new opportunities and, at times, take a venture capitalist approach.
