The Giving Circles Fund (GCF) is a movement of Next Gen philanthropists who utilize the power of collective action to create lasting change. We believe that anyone, yes, even you, can become a generous, committed and strategic giver. We recognize that affordability, knowledge and impact are barriers to giving for many Millennials (a fancy term for 20- and 30-somethings.) Student loans and starting salaries leave many of us feeling like we don’t have much to contribute, and that our modest donations are just drops in an overwhelmingly large bucket. Our generation is passionate about improving our world, but many of us have never really thought about our giving and don’t know where to start. That’s where the power of collective giving comes in. We operate a network of giving circles (a group of people who pool their resources and make funding decisions together.) Pooling donations allows us to amplify our impact and do so with the coolest kids on the block. By making it easy for anyone to build or join a giving circle, we empower our peers to donate thoughtfully to address critical issues in our communities each year. We are building the next generation of philanthropists. Join the party!
