NEID sponsored events have a strict “no solicitation” policy.
In 2018 NEID is inaugurating a second GIVING CIRLCE, this one focused on CLIMATE CHANGE. For many philanthropists and investors, climate change mitigation is a high priority, yet not everyone understands the many important ways that this issue is being addressed through philanthropy. This Giving Circle entails a six-month learning journey, during which members of the giving circle get to know each other, pick a set of issues with respect to climate change mitigation that interests them as a group, learn more about how philanthropy and targeted investments can make a difference, and finally how they as a group can support climate change mitigation globally from New England. A major focus of the Circle’s discussions will be jointly selecting and reviewing organizations that the Circle wants to support. The grants made by the Giving Circle on Climate Change will be publically announced at the Annual NEID Gala, which will take place on November 28 in 2018.
During our second meeting we will be learning about the selected focus and sharpening the criteria.
