Sara wants to invite you over to dinner at her house. In this loud, chaotic, loving environment, Sara shows you how to build power in your community through the power of collective giving. In the process, Sara and her friends – along with hundreds of thousands of people worldwide – are part of a global giving circle movement ushering in a new era in philanthropy that is diverse, democratic, and joyful. And when more diverse people become philanthropists, more diverse solutions and nonprofit leaders get funded.
Watch this TED Talk on giving circles to learn how giving circles turn the act of giving — which is so often done individually and reactively — into a collaborative, intentional, joyful, values-based way of engaging with the issues that matter most.
