Why Parents Should Introduce Philanthropy to Their Children

Publication Date: November 25, 2014

Authors: Lynn M. Croneberger

The author is the Chief Executive Officer of SOS Children’s Village (USA). She asserts that if we want to build the next generation of philanthropists, we must give children access to philanthropic opportunities. She suggests that volunteering, raising money for charities, or talking about the importance of contributing to our communities are all activities that can inspire a child to be philanthropic — to form a world view in which they are naturally connected to others. Parent or not, adults must show children how meaningful it can be to connect with and care for others the world over.
