Learn ways you can support the organizations in your community, beyond a one-time donation. Sara Lomelin, Executive Director of Philanthropy Together, and Afi Tengue, VP of Philanthropy and Impact at Giving Compass, will discuss the role of giving circles in building relationships in communities and why a singular, reactionary donation doesn’t solve long-term structural issues.
