What Is Philanthropy?

Philanthropy is the act of donating money, goods, services, time and/or effort to support a socially beneficial cause with a defined objective,and with no financial or material reward to the donor.

Philanthropy can be any activity intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. Philanthropists (people who practice philanthropy) can be wealthy, but many people perform philanthropic acts without possessing great wealth.

Why should young people be involved in philanthropy?

Young people have a desire to make a positive difference. They know about their community, and want to have a say in the decisions that impact what will create their future.

Students in school have the power to make miracles happen! They can support sick and injured children throughout western Canada and beyond by volunteering, or hosting their very own fundraiser.      

By getting involved students will:

  • Learn how to be a good team player and to work constructively as a team;
  • Learn how to create a budget and practice proper money handling skills;
  • Build school spirit, and meet other kids in your school that may not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet;
  • Set goals and understand the efforts required to achieve their goals;
  • Influence the future of the community they live in;
  • Learn and practice effective communication;
  • Understand what it means to provide good customer service;
  • Build self-esteem and confidence; and
  • Have fun and know that they are making a significant difference in the lives of sick and injured children!

To share your school's fundraising ideas and for further information, please email part of our Community Initiatives Team, or call 780-433-5437.
