Connected to Give: Community Circle

Connected to Give: Community Circles is the fifth report in the series. It outlines the demographics of giving circle participation and, through interviews with participants in African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Jewish, LGBT, women’s, and Millennial-generation giving circles, examines how people explore and express shared identities through collaborative giving.

Connected to Give is a collaborative project of a consortium of independent foundations, family foundations, community foundations, and Jewish federations working in partnership with Jumpstart to map the landscape of charitable giving by Americans of different faith traditions. Connected to Give: Community Circles is written by Evelyn DeanOlmsted, Sarah Bunin Benor, and Jim Gerstein, with additional research by Ayala Fader and contributions from Joshua Avedon, Shawn Landres, and Michal Lemberger.
