Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Jewish Youth Philanthropy Program

The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Phoenix created the B’nai Tzedek Youth Philanthropy Program to educate and train teenagers to be philanthropic. The participants contribute to a special fund, study philanthropy and local nonprofits, make site visits and collectively discuss and award grants. The Lodestar Foundation was an initial funder of the program.
