I read an interesting blog post on the benefits of youth philanthropy recently:
"Addictions, dropout rates, gang violence — we are seldom at a loss for stories of how today’s youth burden society locally and nationally. What is the solution to this upsetting trend? Youth philanthropy."
You can read the rest here.
I’m seeing more and more nonprofits, foundations and governmental entities encouraging philanthropy among young people. What a great trend. Initiatives like these are building the future of The Second Great Wave of Philanthropy.
