The Teaching Tzedakah Program is powered by Chimp and created as part of The Tzedakah Project with intention of facilitating a philanthropic conversation and action between educators, students and their families. The goal is to inspire the next generation of givers.




  1. Participating students in the program will be gifted $18 each month during the school year to give away to the charity of their choice.

  2. Participating students will meet with their families each month to identify a charity that will receive the gift and together they will make the allocation.

  3. Once a month students will report back to their class which charity they chose and why.

  4. Once a month a representative from one of the benefiting charities will “reward” students with an in-person impact report on how their gifts create impact for that charity.
