From Cultural Consumer to Cultural Investor in 90 Minutes
Take your love for literature to a new level and shape Jewish culture and community in this interactive, real-time “flash giving circle.”
The San Diego Jewish Book Fair has stimulated a community of book lovers who get together to learn, listen, and be enriched. What happens when you and other Book Fair lovers initiate your own philanthropy to address the issues that matter most to you and do it together with your friends and fellow cultural consumers? This highly interactive session will explore the hottest trend in philanthropy—giving circles—which serve as a powerful tool for small groups to make big change: to give together strategically, to build community, and to connect to potential recipients who are bettering the world in meaningful ways. We’ll engage in an actual giving circle in the session, giving away up to $1,800 provided by the Leichtag Foundation and matched by you at the level you are comfortable with, even $1! This session, hosted by the Leichtag Foundation, will feature the launch of an exciting Giving Circle Initiative, aimed at building community philanthropy in San Diego’s North County Coastal region. A light dinner will be served at this session.
This event made possible due to the generosity of the Leichtag Foundation
