THE CIVIC AND POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT OF COLLABORATIVE PHILANTHROPISTS: EVIDENCE FROM GIVING CIRCLES IN THE US AND UK 

 

In a network and neoliberal governance environment, philanthropy and voluntary association have grown in importance as means for engaging citizens in civic and political life. The focus of this research is to understand if participation in emerging forms of collaborative philanthropic voluntary associations in the US and the UK—giving circles—lead to increased civic and political engagement, including increased giving, volunteering and political action. Giving circles involve individuals pooling resources to support beneficiaries of mutual interest and typically include social, educational, and volunteer opportunities. The research draws primarily on data from surveys of members from various giving circles and a control group of donors not in giving circles. The findings suggest giving circles might serve as both “schools” and “pools” of democracy.
