The Arizona Grantmakers Forum, in partnership with a number of other philanthropic and civic organizations around Arizona, hosted a conversation with noted author Susan Crites Price, who provided participants with information to help adults teach children - from toddlers to teens - how to use their time, talent, and money to help others.
"Parents, grandparents, teachers and others who care for children can do a lot to instill philanthropic values in our next generation,” explains Price. “Children want to be needed and to feel capable. The best way to achieve that is by giving their time, talent and treasure."
Attendees left with strategies for teaching children about philanthropy, as well as a copy of Price’s book, The Giving Family: Raising Our Children to Help Others, which provides scores of inspired ideas, real stories, specific tips, exercises and resources that are easy to use in any home.
