What is Global Circle?
Global Circle is a national network of young professionals in their 20s and 30s who share a passion for the work of American Jewish World Service (AJWS) to end poverty and promote human rights in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Global Circle seeks to raise awareness about the work of AJWS and engage young professionals through philanthropy, events and digital advocacy.
Global Circle Investors live their values by making a minimum contribution of $500 annually (or $42/month) to support AJWS. As an investor, your gift will support the work of more than 450 social change organizations that AJWS funds around the world—organizations that are advancing the rights of women, girls and LGBTQI+ people in Uganda; protecting the land indigenous farmers depend on for survival in Guatemala; aiding persecuted ethnic minorities fleeing Burma—and so much more. Your investment takes us one step closer to fulfilling our dream of a world free from poverty, oppression and injustice where all people can live with dignity, safety and health.
We love our donors! Being a Global Circle investor has its perks. As part of this valued group, you’ll gain free entry to select Global Circle events and will be invited to exclusive activities to learn more about AJWS’s work. You’ll also receive periodic updates from the chair of AJWS’s board of trustees on the latest news from our grantees and activists worldwide.
