From the first charitable drive in the Massachusetts Bay Colony to the latest crowdfunding campaign, pandemic response fund, or local organizing effort, generosity is ever-present in America’s story. It shapes the quality of life in every community.
We’re here to celebrate and support that spirit. We are a nonpartisan group of individuals with a mission to celebrate and support Americans’ spirit of generosity as expressed through everyday giving, volunteering, and other forms of civic engagement.
We’re using in-depth research and public conversations to contribute to national understanding about how individual givers and volunteers are reimagining generosity in powerful and positive ways.
In late 2023, informed by our learning and listening, we will conclude our work with clear recommendations for the business, nonprofit, and policy sectors to support and enable everyday giving and volunteering. Ultimately, we seek to foster a culture of individual and collective generosity in the face of the social and economic challenges our society faces today.
