Giving Circles

A giving circle is a group of donors who focus their philanthropic efforts on their common identity or shared experience.

The Denver Foundation has hosted a dozen such groups over the past decade. Please click here for more information on starting a giving circle at The Denver Foundation.

Among those groups are:

Denver African-American Philanthropists (D.A.A.P.): Black Men Giving with a Purpose
D.A.A.P. works to positively impact Denver by strategically giving time, talent, treasure, and testimony to those in greatest need.
Check out D.A.A.P. on Facebook
