Global Philanthropy Education for 100 US Youth

by Allowance for Good


Allowance for Good is developing the rising generation of global philanthropic leaders. This project supports two 2013 goals: 1) reach 100 US teens through programming in philanthropy and global education equity & 2) support US youth ages 13-18 in to lead projects in their communities that raise awareness and funds for our global partners. By encouraging the action of global giving at a young age, we invite US youth to build a habit of philanthropy and sense of global citizenship for a lifetime.

The CWP estimates Americans will pass an average $56 trillion to the next generation by 2052. To create good stewards of these resources and to address root causes of poverty, we must educate the next generation about responsible giving. When AfG engages internationally, we do so with an innovative approach that empowers local stakeholders and invests in multi-sectoral education projects to reduce poverty. In return, US teens that engage with AfG become active participants in global giving.


With your support, Allowance for Good will educate 100 US teens in philanthropy and the challenges in global education through direct programming. We will then invite youth to take action by contributing $5 or $10 on weekly, monthly, or one time to global education projects to one of our global partners. These funds will directly benefit the 50 children attending in the community who need access to clean water, a better school facility, and greater educational opportunity.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 100 youth equipping them with knowledge and skills active, lifelong catalysts in global philanthropy and international education. Their commitment to addressing the challenges in international education will help to break the cycle of poverty faced by youth in Cambodia and Guatemala. They will also have the chance to impact the lives of youth in Zambia and Nicaragua, where we will partner with organizations to address similar challenges.
