Give As We Grow: Engaging Youth in Philanthropy
NATIONAL CENTER FOR FAMILY PHILANTHROPY
As members of the National Center for Family Philanthropy, we are happy to share with our fellow members a new digital platform, Give As We Grow, that we recently launched to help families cultivate a culture of generosity and service in their children.
When our oldest son was four, they passed around a donation bucket at the children’s museum where he had attended a day camp. It was the first time I saw him recognize a need and want to respond, even if just with piggy bank change. I knew I wanted to remember that moment and encourage others like it to come. We looked for resources to support us as busy parents on this journey but couldn’t find a “one stop shop.” So we created it! And we hope it will help your family, too.
