Educating Hearts and Minds
Magnified Giving is a 501(C)3 educational organization based in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, with partner schools in greater Cincinnati, central Ohio, northeast Ohio, and northern Kentucky. Our mission is to educate, inspire and engage students in philanthropy, and to touch the hearts and minds of teens, lighten the concerns of others, and magnify the impact of philanthropy.
WHAT WE DO Our program concept is simple. Partnering with high schools and middle schools, we give groups of students $1000 and invite them to invest our money in the local non-profit community. Students research the social causes that touch their hearts, explore the non-profits serving those needs, meet with agency reps, participate in discussions, make critical decisions, and decide which non-profit organization should receive their $1000! Students present their checks at our annual Awards Ceremonies where we celebrate what they've learned. We even match up to $250 of student-generated funds, and give the cooperating teacher a stipend for his/her leadership. Philanthropy education is alive and well in Ohio and Kentucky!
WATCH US GROW We are growing our program to include up to 10 new schools for the 2016-17 school year. For more information contact Todd Forman at email@example.com or 513.550.0518, or download a school application to learn more.
