January Meeting – Giving Circles for a Common Cause
Friday, January 14th 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
*Please note: Meeting will begin promptly at 11:30 with networking time after the presentation.
When individuals pool their charitable dollars and focus on key issues, their impact can be far greater than individual gifts. A giving circle’s relationships with specific charities creates a deeper level of involvement for donors and the nonprofits they support. Giving circles allow anyone to contribute to a common cause, either as a supporting donor or as an active committee member. Members and supporters help to increase the giving circle’s assets over time, helping to make a significant impact in the communities they serve. Join AFP Southern Arizona and special guest, Kim Covington, Vice President of Community Initiatives with the Arizona Community Foundation, for a special discussion about establishing and sustaining successful giving circles where you’ll learn how giving circles can benefit your organization and its mission.
Kim Covington is the Vice President of Community Initiatives at the Arizona Community Foundation. Covington works to amplify ACF’s presence in diverse communities across the state by creating innovative and community collaborations with existing and new partners. From leading the Philanthropy for All Initiative, or convening the community to have conversations about social justice issues in the Courage to Listen, Learn and Act, Covington and ACF believe there is power in partnerships, shared passion and pooled resources.
Covington left the formal newsroom after 30 years in the television news industry. Along with her time at KPNX 12 News as a News Anchor and School Solutions Reporter, her career spans from Springfield, Missouri and Grand Rapids, Michigan to her hometown St. Louis, Missouri, ensuring diverse voices were present in her stories and news coverage.
