A Handbook for Giving Circle Hosts

Publication date: 
December, 2008

This handbook is a practical tool that will help you think through the pros and cons, the ins and outs, and the nuts and bolts of developing and supporting a healthy giving circle.

This resource contains useful advice and a number of ready-to-use tools for you to write on, share with your board and your (potential) giving circle members, modify, and adapt. More tools, sample documents, and information are available at the Forum’s Giving Circles Knowledge Center: www.giving forum.org/givingcircles. This online resource is continually updated with stories and resources from giving circles across the country. We hope you will visit the Knowledge Center and share your story with other giving circles.
