Grantmaking Pods & Committee

Advancing Pangea Giving’s mission of supporting our grantee-partners while also maintaining our volunteer-led organizational structure requires our members to contribute not only their financial resources but also their time and talents. As a side benefit, becoming involved in one of Pangea’s grantmaking groups (a.k.a. Pods) or committees provides a great opportunity for members to get to know and learn from one another.

Regional Grantmaking “Pods”

Each of our three regional Pods invites grant proposals, reviews applications, and learns about the issues in their regions, building consensus for our grant awards each year.
