This moment places our shared humanity front and center, creating unique conditions for activating the philanthropic capacity of children. This is our mission! Therefore, this summer, we have adapted and accelerated our work in order to connect with more kids, families, and community leaders. Sign up for our weekly newsletter to learn more.
The Giving Square advances the democratic ideals of equality and civic responsibility by recognizing children as leaders for a new model of philanthropy, one grounded in our natural empathetic connections to the experiences and needs of others.
We envision a world where communities thrive because everyone, especially children, is active, empathetic, and impactful contributors to society.
KIDS FOR KIDS FUND
We offer a dynamic civic experience for 3-5th graders to develop their own philanthropic capacity. The Kids for Kids Fund is run through schools, camps, and other community programs. We focus on building an empathetic connection to the needs of others, exploring solutions in our communities, and putting our philanthropic capacities into practice.
We engage children, their parents, and grandparents, in various family oriented workshops and field trips. These sessions are fun, dynamic, and centered around The Giving Square methodology. Stay tuned for a new program for kids and their grandparents this summer!
We offer a fresh perspective on family giving. This guidebook promotes our methodology and highlights the wisdom of Kids for Kids Fund students, community advisors, and philanthropic experts.
GUIDE TO GIVING
We were a group of citizens concerned about the rise of the “us vs. them” narrative in our country. We were a group of parents seeking to raise caring children amidst increased rates of bullying and narcissism in our schools. We were professionals in philanthropy, community development and social change, thirsty for a new way to engage children as community builders. Under these forces, a new idea was born, to disrupt how, who, and when we engage children in philanthropy by starting a program grounded in empathetic connections to the needs of others.
