Understanding public and private groups

In the Benevity community, groups are either public or private. Knowing the difference helps you find the right space to connect, share, and engage with others.

Public Groups

  • Easy Access: Anyone can join a public group without needing approval. Just hit join, and you’re in!

Private Groups

  • Application Required: Joining a private group means applying first. These groups might cover more sensitive topics or personal experiences.
  • Membership Info: To find out what you need to join a private group, check the About this group tab on the group’s homepage. 

Some groups might be private to create a safe space for members to share, while others are public to welcome both members and allies. Once you’re a member of a group, you can chat, share, and access the group's resources freely.

Go to the All Groups tab and check the group summary to see if a group is public or private.
