Event description

Description

In 2009, AFP Atlanta launched the Philanthropy in the Classroom program to introduce to elementary children the concept of philanthropy. The program's growth includes a strong partnership with the Kiwanis Club. The children’s artwork created through this program is displayed at National Philanthropy Day. AFP and Kiwanis Club volunteers have worked with more than 500 children in numerous elementary schools throughout Atlanta.

AFP’s Philanthropy in the Classroom program is a one-hour lesson for third grade that begins with the volunteers reading a book to start a discussion with the students about philanthropy. The children are then invited to express their understanding of philanthropy both verbally and artistically through an art project that shows an example of how they can give their time, talent or treasure.
