Bolder Giving

Give more. Risk more. Inspire more.


Bolder Giving’s encourages people of all backgrounds to:

  • Give More: Increase their giving as a percent of income, assets or business profits.
  • Risk More: Shift how they give by exploring opportunities to give collaboratively, to communities besides their own, to social change and entrepreneurial efforts.
  • Inspire More: Spark discussions about giving with others and share their giving stories to provide a catalyst for new conversations.

We are managing Bolder Giving on behalf of the Zing Foundation and will do so permanently upon approval of the Massachusetts authorities.

In a letter on behalf of the Bolder Giving Board

“We are thrilled that the work we started through Bolder Giving will continue to grow. With its expanded focus on individual donor engagement, NCRP will be a perfect new home for this vital work.”

— Anne and Christopher Ellinger, Philanthropist activists
Founders of Bolder Giving

“I’m thrilled that the critical work of Bolder Giving to inspire and challenge donors to give big to support racial, social, economic and environmental justice will continue as part of NCRP. Now more than ever before, every donor needs to step up and support the critical social change work needed to build a just and sustainable world. As a longtime fan of NCRP, I’m excited to see them expand their work to engage with individual donors as well using the inspiring stories of Bolder Giving as a jumping off point to mobilize new resources for justice.”
