B’nai Tzedek Youth Philanthropy Program is redefining what it means to be a Jewish philanthropist by showing young people that they have the power to make change in the world through a personal and engaged relationship to lifelong giving. This program is a tool for teens to give tzedakah, deepen their commitment to social action and be part of a program that models youth leadership.Teens typically establish their fund with a minimum gift of $500. Annually, teens grant 5% of their fund balance to the 501c3 of their choice.  There are 3-4 programs that are held throughout the year with additional offerings of community service made on a regular basis.   These funds mature at the age of 33 and are intended to be used for lifetime of the donor.
