Giving Circles are a new model of political empowerment. We handle the research, the logistics and the daily work. The engine and the heart for change comes from you. Become a difference-maker today.
Community. Giving Circles are made up of your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues.
Choice. You choose which state to target.
Education. You learn about the power of state legislatures, and how they shape everything from healthcare to clean water to civil rights.
Transparency. We account for every dollar through the election cycle, sharing insights, strategy, and research along the way.
Follow-through. Post-election, we keep you informed about your state and the new vision being enacted there.
Inspiration. Every Giving Circle gets a personalized campaign page where you can share your story, track your progress and inspire supporters.

I’ve never been good at asking for money. Is this the right thing for me?
Many of our Giving Circle members are new to soliciting contributions. Our members tell us that rather than seeing it as asking people for money, they are appealing to their friends and family to support and join a cause that really matters — and they are offering those people a concrete way to help.
How does a Giving Circle work?
A Giving Circle needs a Leader or a Leadership Team who engages with friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues. The Leadership reach out to their networks and these networks join forces to create change.
How big should my Giving Circle be?
There is no perfect Giving Circle size. Giving Circles can be as small as 5 people or as big as 500!
