A giving circle is a group of people with shared values that come together and pool their donations to contribute to a student’s educational goal. Anyone can start a giving circle and encourage friends, colleagues, family members, or membership organizations to provide a scholarship to a deserving first-generation college student. Members of giving circles can opt-in to receive an annual update letter from a CTSF scholar. Generally, giving circles commit to raising $2,000 (or more!) as a group to provide funds for a $2,000 scholarship and, if possible, a new laptop computer for scholars in need.
