Philanthropy education supports a fundamental mission of schools: to educate students for responsible citizenship and to carry on the democratic tradition of citizen engagement.
Philanthropy education teaches children about giving, serving, and private citizen action intended for the common good.
Philanthropy education lessons

• DEVELOP philanthropic behavior and experience (skills), and,
• EMPOWER youth to take voluntary citizen action for the common good in their classrooms, their lives and their communities (behavior).
