OC Giving Circle
January 21, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Giving circle: a group of individuals who meet regularly to pool their donations, teach themselves about causes and issues, make grants collectively, and seek deeper engagement in the process of giving.
Our Commonwealth, which facilitates and accelerates friendships among emerging leaders in Massachusetts, will have a first meeting to discuss what a giving circle is. We will also begin the process of setting goals and structure for the giving circle. Some questions that could well be asked at this meeting:
How will we determine our funding focus?
Is there a limit on number of participants?
What is the size or range of the financial contribution each member will make?
What is the time commitment?
Please come with questions, ideas, and energy. One of the most exciting features about this is the propensity to learn. The more we share challenges and dilemmas, we can get far further, far faster. And by immersing ourselves in philanthropy, moments of learning will appear all the time.
