Join a Giving Project Cohort

You can apply for the next Giving Project Cohort in Fall 2020. We'll select members by December and get started with programming in January 2021. Your final celebration will be in Summer 2021.

There are four basic steps in the Giving Project application process. Take a look here and let us know if you have questions.

What Do Alums Have to Say?

Christina from Cohort 2:
"The phrase that was said to me that stuck with me was the idea that you are asking someone to join the movement, you are asking them to be a part of the change. Would you not want to be asked? That really helped."

Step One

Information Session

We want to meet you! Attend an info session. We usually schedule three or four to meet different schedules. During info sessions, program staff and Giving Project alums talk about the model and always set time aside to answer your questions.

Can't make any of our sessions? Connect with Program Director Allison Johnson Heist.

Step Two

Complete Online Interest Form

Now that you have answers to your questions, fill out the online interest form. We accept and review submissions as they come in.

Step Three

One-On-One Conversations

As a potential program participant, you'll hear from us within two or three weeks. We'll schedule a one-to-one conversation between you and either a Giving Project alumni or a Program Team member. These conversations take place each fall. 

Step Four


Expect to hear from us in December about whether you've been selected to join Giving Project or you'll be placed on a waiting list for a future cohort.
