We have to teach Canadian youth about philanthropy – the future depends on it.

Not too long ago, when I was in high school, I was fortunate enough to have had many opportunities to be involved in my community. I loved volunteering, running fundraising events, and doing what I considered “good work” in my school. I was helping people, I was making a difference, and that made me feel amazing. These opportunities are what first sparked my love for philanthropy, and I am confident that this experience largely contributed to my decision to work in the non-profit sector as an adult.
