From Allocating to Volunteering: TPI 2009
The Teen Philanthropy Institute (TPI) 2009 is rapidly coming to a close. In its second program year TPI had two cohorts. TPI: Mid-Atlantic, the group of returning participants, chose to focus on allocating funds to organizations in Israel. TPI: Bergen, new participants to the program, allocated funds to Bergen County based organizations. Both cohorts learned about the allocation process and grant making procedures, as well as the significant impact their funding will make on the selected organizations. A total of $18,000 was allocated to the six organizations listed below.
This year for her Bat Mitzvah project she has decided to create Bandages of Hope, a contest aimed at getting young people involved in the creative process of band-aid making. Children and teens are encouraged to enter the contest by submitting their best idea for a creative band-aid (click here for official rules). The winning band-aid design will be produced and distributed to children and doctors at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, FL and Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, Israel.
