Philanthropy Together is a new nonprofit, co-created by hundreds of giving circle and collective giving network leaders, to help start new giving circles and help existing giving circles thrive. They're leading a global movement to diversify and democratize philanthropy.
Giving circles bring many more — and widely representative — everyday donors to the table to create equitable communities: people of color, women, LGBTQIA+ people, different giving capacities, youth, people in rural communities, religious minorities, and the list keeps going. Join the movement today!

Kyson Bunthuwong is an explorer of connections, design thinker, and a gritty optimist in the face of challenges. Previously, he was Senior Director at CCS Fundraising, a consulting and management firm that partners with nonprofit organizations across a multitude of sectors on large-scale campaigns and transformative fundraising projects. He got his start in the social impact field right after college when he co-founded a startup venture aimed at tackling Malawi’s illegal charcoal trade through a sustainable bamboo energy alternative. In pursuit of greater impact, this led him to development and marketing roles for various award-winning organizations and international poverty alleviation NGOs—Taproot Foundation, Butler Koshland Fellowships, Village Enterprise, and myAgro. As a former elite gymnast and co-captain of the UC Berkeley team, Kyson is now comfortably retired in Oakland and enjoys low-key activities like oil painting, gardening, and hikes with his husband and rescue pup.
