Equity is not uniform. Every community has different needs. Equity Giving Circle was created to address this fact. So often, giving between the nonprofit community and those who need support is transactional. The processes and proof can sometimes feel prohibitive and take too much time. We are a community of people committed to creating peer-led, community-funded transformational change. Our work aims to build immediate and increased equity throughout Portland’s BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities through a combination of fund development and network building opportunities that center economic equity.
