Giving Circles

Giving Circles consist of groups of individuals who pool their funds and other resources in support of JFCS programs and services. By being a part of a giving circle, donors gain increased awareness and engagement in the process of giving, have a voice in how the pooled funds are used by JFCS, and have a greater impact on the agency than they would as an individual donor.
