Youth In Philanthropy (YIP)

Warrior Run has long been recognized as a supportive and generous community, and it is with this in mind that the district is pursuing a Youth in Philanthropy program to teach and model the benefits of sharing our time, talents, and treasure with our community.

Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) is a program that teaches high school students the meaning of philanthropy, how non-profits function, and the various ways that individuals can contribute to causes that are meaningful to them. Students then have an opportunity to learn about the needs of their school and local communities and to “grant” real funding to organizations of their choice. Additionally, these HS students visit elementary students and teach them about philanthropy in a way that allows children to begin to understand giving and sharing, creating generations of individuals engaged in society's needs and interests.

To view a PowerPoint about this program and its affiliation with the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation, Click HERE.   If you wish to better understand what is meant by “philanthropy,” click here to watch a video.

Please consider sponsoring this worthy project by donating to the Warrior Run Education Foundation, and know that your donation will not only help to educate our students, but will go right back into our community in the form of grants that our students give out at the end of the school year. This really is a gift that keeps on giving.

To donate to YIP, choose Warrior Run District Endowment: Undesignated Pass Through Account, and when prompted to make notes about your donation during the process, please write “In support of YIP” in your comment box.

If you are a teacher that would like to use payroll deduction to help us maintain this program for years to come, please see our Business Manager, Heather Burke.
