Teen Philanthropy


Calling all Jewish high-schoolers!


The Samuel M Goldston Teen Philanthropy Project is a FREE six-month program consisting of monthly Wednesday afternoon sessions.

For 8th-11th graders, the Project is focused on philanthropy, social justice, and volunteerism in theory and practice.

Together, a cohort of Pittsburgh teens will:

  • Learn about social justice, philanthropy and fundraising through a Jewish lens
  • Learn about Judaism, Pittsburgh, and themselves
  • Allocate over $10,000 to a local non-profit of their choice!
  • Learn to evaluate and read grant proposals from local organizations

This amazing program is FREE this year! It is fun, educational, and looks GREAT on college applications! To register (or to request more info) for the Goldson Teen Philanthropy Project, please visit this website.

  • Wednesday, January 19, 4:30pm-6:00pm
  • Wednesday, February 16, 4:30pm-6:00pm
