Introducing Philanthropy to Students

There are several websites available to introduce philanthropic values to kids. Speaking of ways to spend their summertime, it would be nice to encourage our students to become part of the philanthropic community by participating through these websites. These are a fun and easy way to get started and are all online in keeping with our "digital natives" mentalities. Please take a look at the user friendly sites below.
