Effective October 16th, Giving Circles Fund will no longer accept new donations, members or circles. Between October and December, we will work with circles and circle leaders to make final grants. Thank you for your interest in collective giving!

If you’re looking to participate in your final grant round, please email info@givingcirclesfund.org.
If you’re looking to start a circle, please visit https://mygrowfund.org/giving-circles/.
