Giving with Class
Giving with Class is United Way of 1000 Lakes youth philanthropy initiative, designed to teach youth about the importance of giving time, talent and treasure for the common good. The program provides up to $500 project grants to elementary classrooms in the United Way service area, these grants give teachers the opportunity to start a new service project or enhance an area of study. The program aims to inspire and provide youth with a greater understanding of current community conditions; explore leadership development; participate in team-building activities; provide positive peer support; learn about philanthropy and serving the community.
Just as volunteers determine where to allocate funds for United Way agencies, volunteers also review Giving with Class grant applications and determine where to award the dollars.
