Giving Circles bring together people who share similar values or a passionate cause and who want to go beyond traditional giving. They provide opportunities for groups of women to combine their individual resources in order to accomplish great things in their community. If, by pooling charitable donations, a group can accumulate several thousand dollars in a year, that becomes a significant amount of money to address a particular need.
A Giving Circle usually begins with one individual gathering a small, informal, like-minded group whose members share a desire to:
- Learn more about effective charitable giving as a vehicle for social change.
- Leverage the impact of a single charitable contribution.
- Connect with causes they believe in.
- Participate in a social network of people who share similar interests and values.
Charitable giving plays a critical role in the quality of life in Omaha. Giving Circles can leverage greater resources for an investment in our future.
The Women's Fund of Omaha can provide resources and support for area women wanting to create a Giving Circle of their own. For additional information, call 402.827.9280 or email email@example.com.
