When Women Lead the Giving Circle Movement
Giving circles, as Ms. Magazine reported, are usually created by women and/or members of ethnic minority, LGBTQ or other marginalized groups—those who typically hold a lesser share of power and money in the U.S.—though many open their doors to anyone with common values. And, according to the magazine, women make up most of their members.
“There is a rich history of generosity and collective action in our diverse communities,” said Jacqueline Martinez Garcel, Latino Community Foundation (LCF) CEO. “We are learning to look to each other for investments, and that’s powerful.”
