Philanthropy and Youth (PaY)
Philanthropy and Youth (PaY) is a student lead organization. Its vision is to develop the philanthropic spirit in students by cultivating passion and purpose through leadership skill development and proactive community impact. PaY introduces students to the importance of leadership and service through grantmaking. Each PaY committee is allocated $5,000 to use for grantmaking in the community. The students identify areas of focus, research community nonprofits and conduct site visits before deciding how to award the allotted grant money.
Students in grades 9-12 can be in PaY. It is a year long committment - as the process begins in September and continues through May.
