Chicory Giving Group

Charitable giving is a natural outgrowth of a person’s healthy, mature relationship with money

Chicory Clients Support the Wider Community

We know that charitable giving is key to financial health, but we do it for the peace and joy it brings. The original name of the group was Maggie’s Giving Group, in honor of our CEO Maggie Kulyk who started it in 2007. In early 2023 the name was changed to Chicory Giving Group to reflect its growing impact.

Each year Chicory Wealth’s clients nominate organizations to be considered as beneficiaries of an annual fundraising event. Chicory Giving Group board members then choose two final organizations. Our goals align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. As of 2022, Chicory Giving Group had raised approximately $162,000 for community organizations since its inception in 2007.

We will be announcing our 2023 Chicory Giving Group charities in September 2023.

The Nomination Process for Chicory Giving Group


  • 2020 — No Category Priority (Due to these unique COVID-19 impacted times, we paused in 2020 from prioritizing any one of our three broad categories)
  • 2021 & 2024 — Environment/Sustainability
  • 2018 & 2022 — People
  • 2019 & 2023 — Animals

A non-profit nomination:

  • Must be an IRS 501(c)3 qualified charity
  • Must serve a vulnerable/underserved population
  • Must appeal to a broad demographic of Chicory Wealth clients
  • Must have a clear and compelling mission
  • Must generate direct, tangible results
  • Must be well-managed
  • Must demonstrate likelihood of being a sustainable organization
  • Must be able to make a real impact from the projected $4,000 to $7,000 typically raised by our event
  • Does NOT need to be local to metro Atlanta, given that a growing portion of Chicory Wealth clients now live outside of Georgia; it may be a small global organization
  • Should not be a prior recipient of Chicory Giving Group funds
