What can we do?

Give search tips, overview our resources, share what other teachers and youth leaders are doing, and point you to resources that fit your goals.

Would you like to schedule a 20-min Zoom call at your next staff meeting? We'll help your staff get introduce giving and community engagement in the context of grade-level expectations and your school goals for student empowerment.


Learning to Give is co-located with the Council of Michigan Foundations at One South Harbor Drive, Suite 8 Grand Haven, MI 49417.

Learning to Give staff is dedicated to maintaining carefully constructed teaching resources that guide teachers and students to learn the traits of generosity, service, civic action, and revolutionary change.

Our partners are some of our greatest resources. As you learn about issues, seek connections with community organizations, look for service opportunities, or want to plan a project, our partner organizations can help you in your work.
