Youth Philanthropy is a movement, and the movement is growing. Every year all over the world, youth invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in their communities. They are empowering themselves and finding support through youth grantmaking programs that strengthen their independence, leadership development, and decision-making power.
Join Foundation Center West as we highlight the Philanthropy Initiative, a unique program at Lick-Wilmerding High School, in San Francisco. Learn how local philanthropists and inspiring Bay Area youth grantmakers grapple with questions about social justice, equity, and ethics as it pertains to giving. Hear from the youth and leaders themselves as they discuss this innovative model and how it is altering the landscape of philanthropy for the better.
