Putting Family Philanthropy Into Action

Putting family philanthropy in action

Volunteer together

When your children express interest in helping others, help them get started. Don’t force it, but if your son or daughter is interested in volunteering with you as a parent-child team, why not let them decide how to do it? Lay out three options you’d be interested in as well: explain the organizations’ missions, the hours of commitment and the role you both could serve, and then let them choose. (Tip: Consider doing this with each child in your family individually, as one-on-one time they’ll never forget.)

Support a charitable cause in seconds

It’s possible to start supporting those charities right now. Use your Giving Account to set up a recurring grant recommendation to your child’s top charity of choice. (Need help narrowing down the options within a cause they’ve identified? Use our charity research tools to find the perfect fit.)
