In order to provide students with the tools necessary to become the next generation of philanthropists, we have developed a step-by-step program that unites schools, teachers, facilitators, nonprofits, and students in support of their community. 

Schools & Teachers



Making philanthropy a part
of the curriculum.

Each summer, an invitation is sent out to selected teachers, facilitators, and administrators at area schools. They choose one of four ways to implement the Magnified Giving program.

  • as a stand-alone extra-curricular program or as a service learning method of teaching

  • as part of an existing extra-curricular club or organization

  • as part of a community service/social justice class or club

  • as part of a traditional academic class (for example, English or Social Studies)

In all cases, students will participate in a year-long journey that culminates in an award ceremony where funds are granted and lives are changed. 

I am fully dedicated to the project and the program because I have seen the impact it has had on my students. They WANT to help, they WANT to make a difference and this program gives them the opportunity to do that. It has taken on a very important role in my classroom.
