Join Us

The Giving Project Network is committed to supporting efforts to pilot the model in new locations through technical assistance and cohort-based peer learning. Running a Giving Project requires a significant upfront commitment of resources as well as existing relationships with both donors and grassroots organizations. Join us to pilot the Giving Project and to sustain this transformative model.

Watch the recording of Giving Projects Growing Power, a virtual event that introduces the Giving Project model to an audience of social justice funders, donors, and resource mobilizers.

Fund the Model

Funding the Giving Project model is an effective way to move resources to social justice organizations while developing donors to sustain those resources.

 I will take what I learned and apply it in other areas of my life, whether that be work, school, family, etc. I will continue to challenge my biases, expand my mind, and try to imagine and work towards alternative realities. - Giving Project Participant, Bread & Roses Community Fund
