Grow your impact in partnership with a thriving peer community

Circle is a peer-to-peer network that supports funders within – or with ties to – the Middle East to do more with their giving. We are a space to exchange ideas, spark new thinking, and foster collaboration, with a focus on increasing the impact and effectiveness of regional philanthropy.

Our network

Circle offers two membership streams. The first supports individual philanthropists resident in, or with links to the Middle East, and the second, corporate founders and giving professionals also with ties to the region.


Our members include current and aspiring philanthropists, foundations, family offices, CSR professionals, and representatives of corporations and funds – all focused on deploying their giving effectively, for wider good.
