In an effort to promote philanthropy among Coweta’s youth, the Coweta Community Foundation is now providing piggy banks for kids under the age of 14 (through eighth grade) to fill with change.
Several dates will be available for kids to drop off their deposits, and they will even have their own passbooks to help them keep track of the amounts they are depositing and the total balance of how much money they have given throughout the year.
At the end of the year, five nonprofits that work with children will be selected. The children themselves will vote on a recipient, and a grant for the total amount given by the kids that year will go to the organization of their choice. Since this group is just now getting started, the first selection of nonprofits will not be until December 2018.
Banks, passbooks and further information about this program may be obtained by contacting the Foundation at 770-253-1833 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
