Growth of Giving Circles with Maranda Richardson

August 29, 2017

One in eight donors have given a gift through a giving circle and they're on the rise.  

Giving circles are groups where each person in the group puts money in a pot and collectively decide where the money goes.  For years, the image most people had of giving circles was of rich, white women, but that's changing.  According to a study by Connected to Give, nearly half of all giving circles are under 40 and Americans of African, Asian, and Hispanic descent are joining giving circles at twice the rate as non-Jewish whites. 

Maranda Richardson, a founder of the Black Funders of St. Louis (BFSTL), stopped by to talk about what giving circles are, how to start a giving circle, and how nonprofits can find a giving circle that matches their mission and how best to work with them.  

Connect with Maranda by emailing blackfundersstl@gmail.com, going to their website at www.blackfundersstl.com or reaching out on Facebook and Twitter

Managing Change

October 4, 2016

It has been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  In the spirit of that concept, we know as nonprofit leaders that change is inevitable – and it’s necessary for not only our mission’s survival but also for our success as an organization.  But people fear change.  And the best way to make progress as a leader is to tackle head on what we fear the most.
