Seattle NowGen Giving Circle - Jewish Federation

A New Federation Philanthropic Initiative!

The Seattle NowGen Giving Circle is a newly-launched philanthropic initiative focused on developing young-adult Jewish leaders in Seattle. The program exposes its members to business and Jewish interpretations of charity through eight monthly meetings.

Each Giving Circle member donates a minimum of $500, which is pooled and allocated to local Jewish non-profit organizations. Jewish non-profits can apply for funding through an online application, with finalist organizations invited to pitch their causes to the giving circle in person. Allocations are determined through board discussion and voting.

The NowGen Giving Circle is a grassroots initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
