In a nutshell, there are only 3 things you need to do:
Step 1: Connect
Identify a cause you’re passionate about, and recruit friends, family, and community members who care about the same cause.
Step 2: Set Your Rules
Establish ground rules for how your giving circle operates. How often do you meet? How do you collect money? How do you disburse money? How do you consider and choose charities?
Step 3: Grow Your Circle
Recruit new members and keep your existing members happy.
It’s that simple!
And the great news is that there is no right answer. Giving circles all around the country have come up with their own unique strategies and are making a big impact on their favorite causes. You can, too. Start with connecting with others around a cause, and together, build a giving circle that is fun and rewarding to participate in.
