Let’s Break it Down
According to the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers' More Giving Together, a giving circle "is formed when individuals come together and pool their dollars, decide where to give the money (and other resources, such as volunteer time), and learn about their community and philanthropy.
While there were other giving circles in the Omaha metro prior to IBBGives none were specifically dedicated to investing in the lives of Black women and girls. IBBG founding members recognized that philanthropy in Omaha looks and operates the same; often leaving out those who make up the community the most. As a result, IBBG created a platform to change the landscape of philanthropy in the Omaha metro and invite Black women to give in a way that’s meaningful to them.
Support Black Women in the Omaha metro.
