THE GIVING SQUARE
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, are active, empathetic, and impactful contributors to society.
We are a part of a shared humanity. We all give and we all receive.
Life is not fair. We need to make life more equitable for others.
Everyone’s voice and story matters.
In order to help others, we need to try to see the world from their perspective.
We have a responsibility to be compassionate towards and care for others.
All people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.
With the right tools and support, everyone, including children, can be valuable contributors to their communities.
