Catalist, the largest network of women’s collective giving organizations, is joining with local organizations to promote collective giving initiatives across the country in support of Giving Tuesday. Hosted by The Wing, events will be held at their urban locations on Monday, December 2, or Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
Catalist has led the content development for the events and will provide discussion leaders and panelists in concert with local giving circles and other women’s organizations. Discussion will affirm a new wave of an old paradigm is remaking philanthropy. Across the United States and spreading abroad, starting at the grassroots level, community-led giving circles are growing rapidly. The movement is a testament to the power of women banding together with real capital to advance important causes.
According to Catalist Chair Paula Liang, “Our national board members and local affiliate leaders are honored to partner with The Wing to advance this important dialogue. They will focus discussions on active philanthropy, with the message that women can collectively have a significant impact on their communities.”
Catalist supports the creation, development, and expansion of women’s collective giving and grantmaking nationwide and globally. Catalist leads a network of women’s collective giving groups which help women pool their money to make high-impact grants in their local communities. The organization currently has more than 70 affiliates in the US, Australia and the UK, representing over $125 million in giving by more than 17,000 women since 1995.
The Wing is a women-focused, co-working space collective and club with locations in New York City, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Boston. It was founded in 2016 and currently has over 10,000 members.
