Amplifier is a network of giving circles motivated by Jewish values and inspired by changemakers making a difference around the world.

What is a giving circle?

  • A giving circle is a group of friends, family or co-workers who come together to give.

  • They pool their charitable donations and decide together where to allocate their money.

  • Amplifier is a global network of giving circles motivated by Jewish values.

Why join a giving circle?

  • It's Social

    Circle members do more than grantmaking. They also build Jewish community that breaks bread, hosts events, and creates lasting friendships.

  • It's Hands On

    Giving circle members learn about new issues and causes, engage with nonprofits directly, and make giving decisions together.

  • It's Powerful

    No matter how much each member contributes, giving together means your impact is amplified many times over.
