The events of 2020 prompted a proliferation of self-organized and grassroots forms of giving aid to the hardest to reach in our communities. From sharing food, connecting to the internet, or donating to funds, this form of giving has proven to be nimble, equitable, rapid, and gap-filling. But communal philanthropy can also contribute to a critical, long-term goal: community power-building.
In this webinar, we'll focus on giving circles, a fast-growing example of communal philanthropy. Our topics include:
- the benefits of giving circle participation according to the most recent research
- the roots and current roles of identity-based giving circle networks
- key actions nonprofits and funders can take to support these types of communal resource mobilization
