The Giving Circle meets on a monthly basis to share current research/best practices, identify NGOs (and the associated local contact person(s)) of interest, and develop the metrics by which to measure desired outcomes. In order to encourage broad participation, minimum investment dues will be kept low. Meetings will also provide opportunities to build social connections within our community, share personal and professional experiences, and learn from invited speakers. Membership is by invitation, and investment decisions will require a majority vote. The inaugural investment of the Giving Circle will be administered in December 2019.
