What We Do

We strengthen existing collective giving organizations and inspire the creation of new ones. Through regular, collaborative communication we 

  • build leadership in philanthropy by providing forums for sharing best practices and by offering resources about effective philanthropy and emerging trends in the field;
  • offer support and encouragement to women building new collective giving groups in their own communities; and 
  • promote national awareness about the positive impact of collective, community-based philanthropy to increase participation and extend its benefits to more communities. 

How We Do It

  • We offer members-only monthly educational webinars covering relevant topics in philanthropy and grantmaking.
  • We maintain a members-only website with a member directory, interactive discussion forums, and resources from our monthly programs. 
  • We sponsor national conferences hosted by a member organization to educate, offer networking opportunities, and share best practices. Past conferences have been held in Boise, ID; San Diego, CA;  Austin, TX; St. Louis, MO, Charlotte, NC and Jacksonville, FL. Our next conference is October 21-23, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA.

We do not make grants or direct our members' grantmaking. Nonprofit organizations looking for funding opportunities are invited to visit the websites of our member organizations.
