On-the-record National Press Club event will feature local families and leaders from United Nations Foundation and the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy
On Thursday, September 12 at 12:00 pm ET at the National Press Club, the United Nations Foundation and the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy will launch a new report on the charitable habits of children.
The new report helps shed light on the question: “How can I raise my children to be charitable?” The report also investigates how many children give, ways in which parents teach children about giving, and whether demographic differences exist in how children give. The report was conducted by the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and supported by the UN Foundation.
The press event will include leaders from these organizations, as well as local parents and children that represent the report’s findings.
Kathy Calvin, President and CEO, United Nations Foundation
Debra J. Mesch, Ph.D., Director, Women’s Philanthropy Institute
Aaron Sherinian, Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications, United Nations Foundation (moderator)
Also on-hand will be children who are involved in charity, and passionate about donating time and money to the causes they care about – as well as their parents
