NEID Global Giving Circles
NEID Global is a peer-to-peer learning network of passionate and dedicated global philanthropists. Since 2017 we have been running internationally focused Giving Circles and they have rapidly become very popular among our members because they offer intimate but deep learning environments. The themes vary every year and each Circle includes 5-6 sessions. The members of the Circle are led by a Chair who has some expertise on the issue, but all Circle members determine the direction of the learning that takes place.
In 2023, for the first time ever, NEID Global will be facilitating THREE Giving Circles. They will be focused on Children, Economic Justice, and Food Systems. Join a Circle to be part of the conversation and explore the past grantees and causes we've supported through NEID Global International Giving Circles below.
NEID Global's 2023 Giving Circles
NEID Global’s 2023 Food Systems Giving Circle will engage in conversation and debate with academic researchers, small farmers from the Global South, Indigenous People, UN agencies, the private sector and more to seek solutions to our broken food system.
NEID Global’s 2023 Children & Youth Giving Circle will convene to learn from the perspectives of those working with and for young people to create a more promising future for all.
NEID Global’s 2023 Economic Justice Giving Circle will provide an exciting and safe space to learn how we might invest in a way that centers the most vulnerable, yet has the potential to create far-reaching impact.
NEID Global in the News
2021 NEID Global Climate Change & Clean Water Grantees
2019 NEID Global Climate and Health Giving Circle Grantees
The NEID Climate and Health Giving Circle spent its meetings learning about the intersection between climate and health and mainly discovered that while there are quite a few organizations and funders working at this intersection, few are aware of it. In addition, key interlocutors (doctors, teachers for example) are not educating the general public about the linkages. At the same time communication experts have found that people are more likely to change their attitudes and behavior with respect to climate change when health outcomes are linked to climate. The members of the Circle focused on this disconnect and explored ways to improve communication and education about climate and health. They ultimately made grants that in very different ways seek to address this gap. The three grants they chose included Gardens for Health, The Ground Truth Project and Community Environmental Monitor.
2019 NEID Global Refugee Giving Circle Grantees
The NEID Refugee Circle was originally particularly interested in understanding refugee situations at border regions close to Europe and the US (Greece, Turkey, Mexico/Central America) and then began to focus - in the course of their learning journey - on both the plight of refugees in urban centers (as opposed to camps) and the urgent need to support refugee self-reliance in these settings. They also explored how refugees are currently supported here in the United States. The four grants this Circle’s members made were all designed to support refugee self-reliance in urban settings, but geographically included two US based organizations (working to provide refugees both job training and acculturation) and two international ones (working in Turkey with Syrian refugees and working in Uganda with Congolese refugees – in both cases supporting adoption of different types of work skills) The organizations receiving the grants include: Refugee Protection International, YARID, Beautiful Day and New England Arab American Organization.
