Schools

Giving Heart Day is not only a day of giving, but a day of gratitude, kindness and community awareness. These concepts can be introduced and integrated into any school for students of any age. We’d love to work with you to support any curriculum that fits in with your school’s culture and capacities.

We are currently offering businesses the opportunity to sponsor gift cards for local schools, but you may want to consider checking in with your PTO or business sponsors that already exists with your school.

If you are a teacher or school in the Cass and Clay Counties there is an Alex Stern Family Foundation Giving Experience Grant opportunity that you can learn more about by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/ASFFStudentGiving

Philanthropy can be an overwhelming concept to young people who believe that they have nothing to give. Use Giving Hearts Day as a fun and easy way to let people know that giving back can be a donation of time, talent or treasure. Ask students what they are grateful for and then how they would feel if they did not have those things, like a safe home, food or family pet.
