What is a Giving Circle? Put very simply a giving circle is a group of individuals who pool their money and collectively decide on donating to a particular non-profit organization. Some giving circles are self-managed, whose members evaluate potential non-profits and administer grants. Other circles, especially larger ones, employ professional staff for day-to-day grant management. Most circles encourage their members to contribute time and skills as well as money to the organisations being supported. Giving circles usually offer grants to support non-profits, but others use loans or equity funding to invest in social enterprises.
