EPIP LA Announces New Giving Circle

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy - Los Angeles Chapter is proud to partner with the One Percent Foundation to launch the very first EPIP Los Angeles Giving Circle. A special launch party will be held Wednesday, June 18th to share more about the initiative. 

EPIP LA believes that building strong connections to support and champion grantees is at the core of our values as philanthropy professionals. Through the EPIP Los Angeles Giving Circle, you can make a small, $10 monthly donation (for a one-year commitment) and pool your gift with our group to help support a local nonprofit. As a participant you can nominate, vote on, and engage with an emerging organization that’s making a difference in Los Angeles. Leaders of the nonprofit we choose will also become part of the EPIP LA community of support, and will be invited to our educational and networking events held throughout the year.The EPIP Los Angeles Giving Circle (open to EPIP members and non-members) allows participants to take their philanthropic knowledge and experience to the next level:

  • Meet and collaborate with a variety of emerging philanthropy professionals
  • Get hands-on experience leveraging your dollars, expertise, and passion to improve our community
  • Provide tangible support to an innovative, emerging nonprofit in the LA area

At the launch party, interested participants will meet and connect with peers, and hear from a One Percent Foundation Board Member about the incredible impact of giving circles for donors and grantees alike. Both the party and the Giving Circle are open to non-members.
