The Aviv giving circle is returning for its second year! A giving circle is a group of people who pool their charitable donations and decide together where to allocate their money. We will gather to learn and discuss Jewish perspectives on charitable donations, then collectively decide where to give our money. This year, we are focusing specifically on needs within New York City.
This is an opportunity for a small group of 10-15 Aviv folks to come together over the course of 2 months (1 session every other week from Wednesday February 1 to Wednesday, March 15) to build community with fellow Aviv members, discuss giving and social justice priorities, pool resources, and make a charitable gift to an organization of the group’s choosing.
Participating in a giving circle comes with a financial expectation. We understand that everyone’s financial situation looks different and what every individual is able to give may vary. The minimum requirement for this giving circle is $180.
The Aviv giving circle will be facilitated by Community Engagement Program Coordinator Margaret Piraino, Social Action/Social Justice Manager Kiana Davis, and Marshall T. Meyer Rabbinic fellow Alissa Platcow.
