As we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day, one of my favorite holidays of the year, I couldn’t help myself from finding links to one of my favorite growing philanthropic trends: giving circles.
This time of year can mean many things: time with family, exciting annual traditions, or (perhaps a little too much) good food and holiday treats. What this time of year means for the nonprofit space, however, is a real uptick in charitable giving.
This time of year, nonprofits are looking for funding and ways to engage donors, and nonprofit board members are looking for ways to support the organizations they love. One of those ways is in the form of giving to the organizations they serve.
