How to I teach philanthropy to my children?

Include Your Children

After a certain age, children are naturally generous. It is important to nurture this impulse, as it will be the foundation for a lifetime of generosity. Include your children in your donation process, talking with them about the different causes and why it is important to support those causes.

Children notice a lot of the things about the world around them. Ask them who they would like to help and why, and encourage them to consider sharing a portion of their allowance to help those causes. Bring your children to fundraising events—many walks, runs and rides offer children's equivalents, giving them an opportunity to experience a different component of charitable giving.

*Supporting your children's charitable education will not only help lead to a lifetime of caring, giving and happiness, it is a special way for you to bond with your children.
