Keep The Momentum!

Here are some resources for your students to keep the momentum as you head toward the finish line of your Magnified Giving program.

Each of these lessons have been designed to assist as you are transitioning from your standard classroom lessons to a virtual school platform.  Each of these lessons may be implemented from home and submitted electronically. We know you will adjust each of these lessons to best fit your group of students, just as you have the flexibility to implement the Magnified Giving 6 step curriculum to best fit your school culture and program.  

We are here to provide support, please be sure to reach out to us with any questions or needs.
