Philanthropy Kids is dedicated to celebrating and inspiring philanthropy in youth.
You don't have to be rich or old to be a philanthropist.
This is the driving philosophy behind our work at Philanthropy Kids.
We are a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit organization dedicated to celebrating and inspiring philanthropy in youth through our unique education programs and social entrepreneurship experiences. For over a decade, we've worked with kids across the world to help them help their communities.
Our education programs, anchored by our flagship PAVE program, teach kids about giving back in ways that connect their personal interests and strengths to community needs. Participants graduate from our programs with improved confidence, higher grades, and a lifelong spirit of service.
Our innovation programs, anchored by the Impact Factory, provide an environment for young adults to practice charitable action by developing projects to support existing nonprofits, creating their own organizations, or offering their skills pro bono to local causes.
Students who are failing their STAAR tests see a ~30-50 percent point increase in their STAAR test scores after graduating PAVE. Students not failing their STAAR tests see an 8-12 percent point increase in test performance.
All PAVE graduates will have been adequately trained to serve on a nonprofit board of directors.
Our PAVE alumni experience major professional success, including:
Attending college and leading student organizations
Founding their own companies, and
Serving on various city- and county-level commissions
75% of Impact Factory Residents are women entrepreneurs
Impact Factory Fellows have saved area nonprofits $24,000+ through their pro bono work.
