How the MG Process Works: 6 Simple Steps

Our mission is to educate, inspire, and engage students in philanthropy, empowering them to be leaders and to serve others. Each step in our distinctive model magnifies the gifts of donors. These gifts empower the students on their philanthropic journey. This journey begins with a donation, which is received by Magnified Giving then through our school partnerships, teachers educate students on what it means to be a philanthropist. The students entrusted to grant $1000 or more to their local nonprofits. Students explore, discover, and thoughtfully share concerns about the issues in their community through the 6 steps: Establish the Foundation of Philanthropy, Explore Social Causes, Research Nonprofits, Conduct Site Visits & Volunteer, Evaluate Grant Applications, Advocate & Vote!

They are empowered to research, serve, advocate and persuade their peers through presentations and vote on a local nonprofit to receive their grant. Our students are our future and their voices should be heard. Magnified Giving develops the next generation of philanthropists and one donation is magnified for generations.

Through our unique educational model and service-learning method, students discover opportunities to give their time, talents, and treasure to create a positive change in their community – now.

Learn more at teacher training in the fall, and know that the Magnified Giving Team will support you throughout the year.
