Youth need a foundation to stand on in order to begin affecting their communities and engaging with their family's philanthropy.
This unit supplies multiple ways to build that foundation and answers some of the most pressing questions and how to begin to build this structure for youth.
Completing the activity: The Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana (YPII), a signature program of the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance, has the perfect way to stay involved in philanthropy all year long: philanthropy in a box.
This Gift Box helps families incorporate generosity in their lives throughout the year. The box comes with: a graphic novel that introduces the concepts of giving time, talent and treasure; activity cards with hands-on ideas; a set of “conversation starter” cards; a deck of cards to play two different games; Phil’s Giving Circle tokens that a child can leave for someone else when doing a good deed; monthly calendar reminders with “Calls to Action;” and a family pledge card.
It is a great way to get the whole family involved in philanthropy in a fun way.
The game features a game booklet and sixty question cards that will jumpstart family discussion. Cards are organized into four fun categories: Money Matters, Family Matters, Giving Matters, and What Matters to Me?
Keep the game at the dinner table, in your car — how you play the game is much like how you give: it’s entirely up to you. The Talk About Giving game will help your family build meaningful connections that last. You can also go here to get the “question of the week.”
