Giving Circles and Collaborative Giving

Giving Circles are a group of donors that pool their funds and decide, as a group, which cause or project to give to. It's a collaborative approach to giving. Some local examples below:

 
  • Impact100 WA
    • Impact100WA gathers at least one hundred people to donate $1000 each annually and then pool their contributions to make large impact grants to WA-based projects that are collectively chosen by the donors at an annual Grant Awards dinner. Donations are fully tax-deductible and the whole $1000 donation goes directly toward the grants.

  • Impact100 Fremantle
    • Impact100 Fremantle gathers at least 100 donors to each contribute $1,000 annually and then pools the contributions to make high impact grants to charities and projects in the Fremantle area.

  • Meridian Global Foundation
    • Founded in 2005 by a group of Perth-based business people looking for a way to connect with like minded philanthropists and give something back to their community.
