Founder’s Circle members provide the investment funds needed to expand GoPhil’s wingspan in identifying and supporting innovative NGO’s quietly doing the heavy lifting in the global development arena. Committed members (individuals and/or couples) invest $5K per year specifically for GoPhilanthropic’s own critical internal development such as hiring staff, developing new regions and expanding our communications/PR tools.
Our Founder’s Circle members have much in common, starting with an immense passion for active, rather than passive philanthropy. The more they have followed this path of engagement, the farther they have each wanted to go — and not simply because it feels good, but because it feels right.
Most of these members have been through our growing pains alongside us over the years and almost all have traveled to connect one-on-one with our partners around the world. Probably the most important thing to us, though, is that they each share GoPhilanthropic’s values and ethics — including a belief in respectfully listening and learning from those who are closest to the issues and not assuming we have all of the answers.
