There are many reason to join TGF. You will no doubt come up with your own. Here are some of our top 10:
Most importantly, our goal is to inspire and promote an inner passion to give, to help others, to gather support and to provide our youth an opportunity to experience first-hand the powerful impact that philanthropy has on a community.
How awesome for teens to prove to themselves that they not only can make a difference, but that they already have!
We often play games, have ice breakers, and try to come up with creative ways to share and listen to each others' opinions regarding issues in our community, both positive and negative. We also bring in guest speakers, and those who have years of experience in teaching and training youth philanthropists.
TGF is on a temporary break while we work to reinvent our approach in bringing together the philanthropic interest of the teens in our community and the organizations that will benefit from their support. We plan to resume our youth philanthropy group in 2020. Rest assured that our permanent endowment continues to grow and that the funds will be available for granting when our meetings resume. Thank you for your interest and support!
