Philanthropy in the Classroom

Philanthropy in the Classroom

Thank you to our volunteers! 

This year, we are partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta to host our Philanthropy in the Classroom programs on August 24 and August 26 at three different club locations around the Metro area.

August 24
A.W. “Tony” Matthews Boys & Girls Club
James T. Anderson Boys & Girls Club

August 26
East DeKalb Boys & Girls Club
Redan Recreation Center

Volunteers worked with Kindergarten – 3rd Graders where they discussed what philanthropy is and drew pictures with the kids showing examples of philanthropy in action. Volunteers also read a children’s book called The Adventures of Phil An Thropy to the kids, which was written by local AFP Members and Atlanta fundraisers, Linda Wise McNay, Del Martin, and Ailena Parramore.

Thanks for taking the time to share more about philanthropy with kids in our community!
