Future Philanthropists teaches the next generation to choose and fund the most deserving charities in their own communities.

Future Philanthropists was founded by Heather Jack and a few dedicated supporters as a program of The Volunteer Family. Through her work with The Volunteer Family, which has helped over 20,000 families choose volunteer opportunities nationwide, Heather heard from parents and students that while they loved volunteering, they wanted to learn and do more. They wanted to learn more about their own communities; they wanted to understand how the nonprofit sector worked; and they wanted to figure out how their donations could have the greatest impact.

And so, with an initial investment by the Highland Street Foundation in 2009, Future Philanthropists began. Since then, Future Philanthropists has empowered over 400 youth to work together to analyze and write nonprofit budgets, to present to one another, and to choose the most deserving charities in their communities. In just three years, Future Philanthropists has overseen nearly $300,000 that, after careful research and deliberation, the youth participating in the program have donated to the most effective and well managed local food pantries, shelters, social service agencies, environmental organizations and youth programs in their communities.

Because of the program’s success and rapid growth, Future Philanthropists is now a separate 501(c)(3) organization with multiple financial supporters, and most importantly, an ever increasing number of students learning to be the next generation of philanthropists.
