We’re a social enterprise committed to helping Charities, not-for-profits and Community Groups access grants, grow their supporter base, raise their profile and generate donations. As part of our mission we commit each year to give away up to $1,000,000 in grants and donations - with all grants funded out of the income that we earn. As a social enterprise we earn money by helping connect charities with donors, featuring charities to find them more supporters and by earning a small platform fee when people donate via MyGivingCircle. From time to time socially responsible companies also come on-board to sponsor grants.
When you donate or feature a charity on MyGivingCircle a percentage of your generous support goes back into growing our grants pool and letting us help more charities.
To give Charities, not-for-profits and community groups – large and small – a chance to:
- Receive grants that let them do more in their communities
- Grow their supporter and donor base by matching them with people most likely to be interested in what they do
- Raise donations and engage their supporter base
To give individuals from all walks of life a chance to:
- Nominate and advocate for their favourite charities to receive grants throughout the year
- Donate and support their favourite charities
- To feel part of a community of people who share a passion for particular causes
Meet the Team
Having started and sold a couple of Internet companies when the Internet was still shiny and new, Aaron was determined that any future project would focus on social good. While thinking about what that would look like, he participated in a Giving Circle (without even knowing there was a name for it!) and was amazed at how engaged everyone in the circle was with the entire process of choosing and supporting a good cause. A few months later, and with some great support from both individuals and companies – MyGivingCircle.org was born, and Aaron looks forward to seeing where this journey takes everyone involved.
