I’d like to thank both Lisa Kays of the Washington Area Women’s Foundation Blog and Angela Eikenberry (who’s research on giving circles I discussed last month) for sending me a link to The Giving Circles Knowledge Center:
"Throughout history, passionate individuals have joined together to make life better in their communities. Today, thousands of donors have pooled their money, energy, and ideas to create Giving Circles.
The Giving Circle Knowledge Center is full of useful information, resources, sample documents, and inspiration for:
- Anyone who is curious about giving circles – what they are, how they work, and their impact on donors and communities
- Anyone who is considering starting or joining a giving circle
- Members of established giving circles who want to continue to learn, grow, and share their successes and challenges
- Community Foundations, nonprofits, or other organizations considering or currently hosting giving circles."
If anyone is aware of other resources on starting and running a giving circle, please let me know.
