Giving Circles

The Power of Women’s Collective Giving

Giving circles are gaining in popularity and the majority of these donors are women. The Women’s Fund is proud to host several giving circles, where donors leverage their collective resources to meet a community need and create the change they wish to see.

Do you have a group of friends or family members interested in female philanthropy? Giving Circles are a great way to have fun and support local women and girls in Northeast Wisconsin. Each circle will make contributions and award grants based on their values and interests. Best of all, each circle will build a permanently endowed fund within the Women’s Fund which will support the circle’s charitable interests forever!

Charitable Giving in Groups

The Women’s Fund will be your partner in establishing your Giving Circle and charitable fund. We will help you assess and achieve your goals for charitable giving and eliminate the undue burden of operating a separate nonprofit. We can provide guidance at anytime about issues in the community, grantmaking strategies and impactful philanthropy.

See our Giving Circle Guidelines for more information.
