Other Worlds Are Possible

May 7th, 2012

Our Bold Givers work on the most fascinating projects!

One recent inspiring example - the Other Worlds Are Possible Giving Circle. Co-founded by Bold Giver Laurie Emrich several years ago, they are preparing to launch their third cycle and are seeking new members.

In its first two cycles, the circle distributed nearly $240,000 and coordinated a fascinating series of calls in which activists from the Global South conversed with one another, gave their perspectives on their own regional work in launching alternatives resource rights projects, and answered questions from Giving Circle participants.

If you’ve wanted to learn about (and help support) just and sustainable alternatives to dominant economic and social systems, I hope you’ll check out this opportunity. Plus you’ll get to know Laurie and the other fabulous members of the circle. Participation is open to individual donors and foundation staff and trustees and can range from just writing a check to participating in learning calls to serving on the core grantmaking committee. The circle is co-sponsored by Grantmakers Without Borders and Other Worlds. For more information, you can contact Susan Beaudry, Program Coordinator, at [hidden email]. And if you do get involved, I’d love to hear what your experience is like.
