Hello Philanthropist!

Change is Yours

Everyone can (and should) be a philanthropist — including you!

Giving dollars and time are effective ways to make real change happen. Why not join forces with people who also want to show up for their community? You can do it small, you can do it big, but showing up is key.

People are coming together around the globe to create the change they want to see in the world. Giving circles enable individuals to increase their impact and knowledge, have fun, and connect with their local community.

Philanthropy Together is a global initiative created to help you and hundreds of everyday givers start and strengthen your giving circle.

What Is A Giving Circle?

Gather a group of friends, family, co-workers, and/or community members


Discuss the vision and values that motivate you to give and see commonality within your group


Pool your funds and decide where to give based on your values


Give your pooled donation — your individual gift is multiplied by the power of the group!


Engage beyond your gift — with your membership and with organizations you support for multiplied impact

Cancun Giving Circle

Giving circles remind us of the ways we used to give in the past, and bring our giving into the 21st century all at the same time. In Mexico,  Giving circles are allowing people of all ages and backgrounds to come together to learn more about what’s going on in their community, to think more carefully and critically about how to give, and to feel connected to each other.

DIFFvelopment Giving Circle

DIFFvelopment is an extension of family. It’s an extension of our immediate network and these are people who chose to take part in this because they already feel invested in us and invested in what matters to us — there’s that shared interest.
