no small change

A Teen Philanthropic Leadership Program

What is

no small change?

No Small Change was launched in 2016 with the goal of developing future leaders and philanthropists who would help create a more equitable and just world through their actions and charitable giving.

Since then, more than 60 teens have participated in NSC and learned about Jewish values and tzedekah, gender lens philanthropy, fundraising, and strategic grant making. They have also given away over $65,000 in grants to local, national, and Israeli organizations.

In addition to gaining valuable leadership skills and knowledge, teens are also building friendships, having fun, and earning service hours.
