A Giving Circle is formed when individuals come together to pool their dollars to make a greater impact in the community. Giving circles have memberships, their own activities and events, and make grants as a group. As a result, their collective impact is far greater than any one member could achieve alone, and their relationships with specific charities create a deeper level of involvement for donors and the nonprofits they support.
