Impact Giving is a women’s collective giving group that engages, educates and empowers women by coming together to effect positive social change in our communities, in our nation and around the world.
WHO THEY ARE?
Six years ago. Five friends who wanted to change their way of giving. Together, they dreamed of multiplying the impact of their individual giving, so they created IMPACT GIVING, a women’s collective giving organization dedicated to effecting positive social change and transforming lives in our communities, our nation, and around the world.
In this short time, they have grown to 150 women who have awarded 41 grants, both locally and globally for a total of $731,000.
WHAT IS COLLECTIVE GIVING?
Collective giving allows Impact Giving Partners to pool their money, their knowledge of local and/or global needs, and their personal experience.
Then, together, we decide where to “grant” our charitable dollars. As a group, they research the nonprofits they fund to ensure their viability, while increasing the amount of support far beyond what any one of us could offer individually. Pooling our giving dollars exponentially multiplies the impact of our giving. Being part of Impact Giving can deepen your philanthropic experience. Your involvement might include educational activities, grant proposal reviews, nonprofit site visits, voting, and volunteer opportunities. The level of participation is determined by each individual and their ability and desire for involvement.
