Welcome to the Community Investment Network
The Community Investment Network is a national network of giving circles and everyday philanthropists, founded in North Carolina and rooted in the Southeast. We have expanded our movement across the country in order to make a positive change in more communities. We are ordinary people making extraordinary contributions. Our members give their time, talent, treasure and testimonials to be the change we wish to see.
The Community Investment Network inspires, connects and strengthens African Americans and communities of color to leverage their collective resources and create the change THEY wish to see.
CIN's new report "The Impacts of Giving Together: Giving Circles as a Civic Engagement Strategy" (published in December 2011) tells the stories of how giving circles are a growing type of community philanthropy. View and download the report here.
