In celebration of the 20 year anniversary of the Youth in Philanthropy program, we’re launching a new initiative called the Family Giving Circle. This innovative new program uses a unique, hybrid approach that enables parents and students to learn about philanthropy together to make a difference in their community. A giving circle is formed when individuals come together and pool their dollars, decide together where to give the money (and other resources such as volunteer time), and learn together about their community and philanthropy.
The Family Giving Circle teaches students to make impactful, strategic decisions about giving while encouraging conversations around the dinner table on the importance of philanthropic work, giving back and facilitating positive change.
