FOUNDER SPOTLIGHT slide-0

A Founder’s Perspective

"My favorite part of Full Circle Fund’s approach is that it’s an active one: it’s not about writing a check and then walking away. It’s about learning, sharing, meeting others, and getting involved... You are giving your community a new gift, every day, through your actions, your talents, your connections and resources."

Check out our first Founder Spotlight with Joe Kleinschmidt, CEO and Co-Founder of Obindo and Full Circle Fund Board Member, to learn why Full Circle Fund and The Founders' Pledge are meaningful to Joe and his work!
