With the challenges facing giving and volunteering in this generation, leadership from The Giving Institute and Giving USA Foundation began to explore the idea of a commission that could address these concerns. Out of this exploratory effort The Generosity Commission: Igniting America’s Spirit of Generosity was born.
The Generosity Commission is a nonpartisan group that brings together a breadth of stakeholders, voices, and expertise to explore profound questions that will shape the future of giving, volunteering, and other forms of civic engagement in America.
Ultimately, the Generosity Commission will seek to spark a new national conversation that aims to ignite awareness, desire, and action among our citizens to be generous. The goal is to increase giving and volunteering in its many forms from more people across all backgrounds.
