A New National Landscape Study from the Johnson Center

Share your personal experience in collective giving

Everyone can be a philanthropist

Together, let’s create a world filled with passionate, empowered people giving collectively and intentionally

Philanthropy Together is a global initiative, co-created by hundreds of giving circle and collective giving network leaders, to help start new giving circles and help existing giving circles thrive. We’re leading a movement to diversify and democratize philanthropy.

Giving circles bring many more — and widely representative — everyday donors to the table to create equitable communities: people of color, women, LGBTQIA2S+ people, different giving capacities, youth, people in rural communities, religious minorities, and the list keeps going. Join the movement today!
