From the COO: Why Erin Arnheim invests in a Legacy Collective Giving Circle

weekly update

for May 4, 2020

Back in 2005, I volunteered at a children’s home on the Baja Peninsula of Mexico.  My heart broke for the people group we served, and a few years later I began sponsoring a child at the same organization but in their Oaxaca, Mexico location.  Last year, I received a statement showing me that I had given approximately $10,000 over the past 10 years.  I began to wonder how I could make a larger more immediate impact.  A few months after receiving this giving statement, I began learning about the Giving Circles within Legacy Collective.  I came to learn that I could give a monthly amount that I could afford.  But due to the number of other people in the same giving circle community, we were able to combine our giving and nominate organizations we are passionate about to receive larger grants to allow for a more immediate impact.  I still give to specific non-profits, but now I also enjoy being part of a community that comes together financially and with a similar heart to impact organizations together across the globe.  It is more fun and makes a larger impact when we do things like this together! #domoregoodtogether
