Since 2004, I have worked in the non-profit sector, overseeing volunteers and staff and designing and managing programs for underserved (and incredible!) NYC youth. For years, as a social worker and a mom, I have been thinking about how to create a space that highlights the powerful giving being done all around us while also connecting people with simple acts of giving at all ages. It can be a daunting task to navigate how to give, where to give, what to give. Thus, Giving Grows was born!

Our mission is to nurture a sense of giving; in our children, in ourselves and in our communities. We create and share simple, full circle giving experiences. Giving, in whatever ways we can, at whatever times we can, is important.

Let's do this together. Happy Giving!
