Throughout its launching years, Bolder Giving was supported by about 30 individual donors a year, each contributing $1,000-$25,000, plus a few dozen smaller contributors. We are profoundly grateful for their trust and willingness to “risk more” by investing in a new and radical idea.
We are working on permissions to acknowledge our individual donors publicly. In the meantime, we thank the institutions that serve them:
Appleton Foundation, Paul and Edith Babson Foundation, Calvert Giving Fund, The Harnisch Foundation, Illinois Prairie Community Foundation, The Lodestar Foundation, Merrill Family Charitable Foundation of Community Foundation of the National Capital Region, The New Hampshire Charitable Trust, RSF Social Finance, Community Foundation of Santa Cruz, Tides Foundation, Tides Canada, Triskeles Foundation, The Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, and the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota.
We salute the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for their contribution to Bolder Giving and for their leadership in promoting greater giving. We are overjoyed that other institutional funders are coming forward to help us meet the Gates Foundation’s three-year matching grant: Ford Foundation, Atlantic Philanthropies.
If you would like to help Bolder Giving continue to meet this challenge, please contact our Director of Development, Cheryl McCourtie ().
