Jessica Bearman works with foundations and other mission-based organizations, focusing on organization development, facilitation, planning, and project R&D to help them become more intentional, effective, and responsive to the communities that they serve. As a consultant and in her prior role as deputy director of the New Ventures in Philanthropy, she has written and spoken widely about new and established philanthropy and is the author of several studies of giving circles and collective giving – most recently as part of the Collective Giving Research Group.
Jessica is the founder of the Moscow Women’s Giving Circle, which has engaged hundreds of women and given more than $200,000 to community organizations in Latah County, Idaho. She loves living on an organic farm in Idaho with her husband, two wild boys, forty philosophical chickens, and thousands of industrious bees.
