A giving circle is formed when a group of people come together to pool their money, decide where to give that money, and learn about needs in their community.

In addition to pooling money, members contribute their time and talents to significantly contribute to the causes they care about.

The C. C. Dickinson Family Giving Circle has established a Donor-Advised Fund with The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation.
