Lead Your School

Cultivate Your Students; Grow Your Community

Using Learning to Give's standard-aligned lessons, teach both "head and heart" through philanthropy education to motivate and empower learning and positive student action. Together we can help plant the seeds of philanthropy in your community where students are seen as assets, and your students see themselves as good people. 

Following the Philanthropy Field Guide below will take your school from:

  • One teacher teaching one philanthropy inspired lesson to
  • Whole school involved in teaching philanthropy and facilitating service projects to
  • Collaboration with community partners and educators across the country

This Philanthropy Field Guide is an exemplar to whole-school engagement. With your staff and community, form an evidence-based practice of what to teach, expect, and measure using The Philanthropy Field Guide Rubrics (Quick Harvest and Growing Roots). Keep your school on track with resource links, benchmarks, evaluations, and reflections. Plus, celebrate the journey with Learning to Give through social media! 

The Field Guide takes your school along the following path:

 

 

 

  • Quick Harvest - A guide for getting started and harvesting results in one term or over a school year. 

 

  • Growing Roots - A guide that goes beyond the Quick Harvest to help your school plan a long-term, evidence-based culture of caring to harvest impact for years to come.
