Organization Guides

These materials give you everything your group will need to:

  • Discuss and decide on the values that inspire your giving
  • Discover great organizations to consider supporting
  • Pitch those organizations to each other
  • Vote together on which one(s) to support
Send Invites

Ask friends, family, co-workers, fellow alumni of a program or university, neighbors…anyone who wants to do some good in the world in an evening of smart, focused and fun giving.

Choose Location

Find a place to get together – someone's living room, a local café or bar, the nearest Moishe House, an office meeting room… wherever is most conducive to gathering, talking, and having a great time.

Decide Contribution Level

Decide how much people will contribute – give-what-you-can or a set amount ($18, $50, $100, $180)…whatever works best for your group.

Host Event!

Have a great time, and don't forget to take a great photo and tag it #PopupCircle on social media!

Print and use the Pop-up Circle document to guide your group through the 90-minute process, step by step.

Pop-up Circle is a 90-minute version of the whole giving circle experience.

It's a great way to get a taste for how a giving circle works, with minimal prep work. If you are interested in starting a full-scale giving circle after your pop-up experience, we'd be happy to help.
