Charity for Change was founded in 2008 with a vision to empower Pre-K through 5th grade children to achieve their full potential through character education, active charitable and community involvement, academics, and parental and community engagement. Our goal is to cultivate confident and compassionate children who become successful learners, contribute to their schools and communities, and participate in society as ethical, employable, resilient and self-reliant citizens.
The School Giver Program has engaged more than 62,000 children with its weekly Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum for afterschool, summer school, in-school and preschool.
The Program brings character education to life with multiple approaches that include interactive math games, puppet shows, word puzzles, certificates, lesson plans, kinesthetic activities, visits from charities, volunteer projects, contests, incentive prizes, awards shows, and animated and live mascot appearances.
These components provide a foundation for academic achievement, anti-bullying, volunteerism, community involvement, and social and personal responsibility.
Charity for Change™ is a 501(c)(3) public charity. The Charity for Change programs are funded solely by individual donations, foundation grants, business partners, and civic organizations.
