What is Magnified Giving?
Magnified Giving is a local non-profit agency that helps young people like you learn how to become philanthropists. Our premier program is the Student Philanthropy Program. If you and your school choose to participate in our Philanthropy program, we will give you $1000 (or more). The trick is you can't keep it! You must choose a non-profit agency in the greater Cincinnati or northern Kentucky area that you determine is most deserving! At the end of the year we have a big celebration (see photos to the right and the video) and you get to present a BIG check to the agency you chose. Very cool!

What do past participants have to say?
"Magnified Giving's Student Philanthropy Program is the best program that anyone could ever be a part of and it is my favorite club at MND. It changes your life so much. The passion and love you can gain for working with non-profits and the love you achieve for philantropy is amazing. This is the best thing that has ever happened in my life. I have learned to help others more and that I can make a difference." – Mount Notre Dame Student
