Who We Are

Margaret meadquote

Pangea Giving  is a robust community of members and supporters who invest their financial and human resources and are passionate about helping others in developing countries. The contributions of individuals are pooled to collectively make a significant impact through our member engagement and grantmaking program. We invite you to join our community!


Members form the foundation of Pangea’s grant program through their donations and participation in our volunteer-driven grant process. These committed individuals make an annual tax-deductible membership contribution of $1,500 (per individual) or $2,500 (per household). In addition, many members contribute beyond these levels to boost our annual grant pool and sustain Pangea’s operations. They provide the core funding for our work. Members have voting rights, make decisions about grant funding, serve as liaisons to grant partners, and participate in site visits. They form the basis for our learning community by convening and participating in learning events throughout the year. Members are also eligible to lead the organization by serving on the board.

Pangea’s Circle of Friends supports our mission of providing support to community development organizations without the full commitment of membership. Friends make a contribution of $200 or more, and are invited to join invitation-only education events throughout the year. They also provide advice or perspective on issues we are addressing from time to time. Our friends strengthen community involvement in international development and solidarity right here at home.
