Giving circles allow anyone to have outsized impact by pooling resources with other passionate individuals to give a collective grant. Recognizing that affordability, knowledge and impact are a barrier to entry for many people who want to be philanthropic, Giving Circles Fund developed an innovative online platform that has helped emerging philanthropists grant hundreds of thousands of dollars to deserving nonprofits across the country. This program leverages the expertise that Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen gained through founding the Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund (SV2) in 1998 and helps anyone giving any amount become a strategic giver.
