As a result of the many passionate discussions on the power of Black philanthropy, and the desire to harness that power into positive impact for our region, the Black Giving Circle Fund was established at the Hartford Foundation on June 1, 2015. Through this giving circle, members are able to pool their financial contributions, learn together about a topic of interest or concern, and then collectively decide on a grantmaking recommendation to support meaningful and lasting solutions.

As an endowed fund, the building of the fund’s assets are critical to achieving its mission:

To create sustainable change in the Black community by leveraging philanthropic efforts of donors and celebrating Black philanthropy.

 

While any size gift is important and will be used to further the mission of the Black Giving Circle Fund, a minimum donation amount of $365 is necessary to become a member of the giving circle. To join, sign up online or print this form to mail in with your check.
