Giving Circles Quickstart Training/Mentorship
A Giving Circle is a form of philanthropy where groups of individuals donate their own time & money to a pooled fund, deciding together which nonprofit or community project to fund.
AMCF now hosts 3 Giving Circles across the country and we would love for you to start one! Have a group of friends from college? Or want to give together with your siblings? We can help.
Join Amplifier Giving’s webinar and cohort on Giving Circles Quickstart Training/Mentorship. For $50 you’ll partake in a 90 minute webinar on Thursday November 14, 2019 9-10:30am Pacific.
