U.S. `giving circles` growing

U.S. `giving circles` growing: "WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- U.S. 'giving circles,' individuals pooling their charitable donation and jointly deciding which organizations to support, are growing.

A study last February by the Washington, D.C.-based New Ventures in Philanthropy found at least 220 circles in 40 states. Since 2000, they have donated more than $44 million, reported the New York Times Sunday."
