Our Story

Amplifier began as a project of the Natan Fund in 2014 with a mission of starting and supporting giving circles inspired by Jewish values. Giving circles are a group of people with shared values who pool their charitable contributions and go through an intentional process, deciding together where to give. They are a proven, innovative model for community-building, education, stewardship and leadership development. In 2020, Amplifier joined Jewish Federations of North America, offering innovative Jewish experiential education in philanthropy to a larger audience.
