Empowering Tomorrow's Philanthropists: The Oak Leaf Legacy Program
Are you passionate about instilling the spirit of generosity and community support in the younger generation? Look no further than the Oak Leaf Legacy program, a youth-focused initiative dedicated to nurturing a love for philanthropy and instilling valuable life skills in the leaders of tomorrow.
The Oak Leaf Legacy is not just a club; it's a transformative experience for young individuals, fostering a culture of giving and community empowerment. Through our program, participants are equipped with essential life skills, such as leadership, teamwork, and critical thinking, while simultaneously building unwavering confidence and deep-rooted compassion.
At the core of our mission lies education. We emphasize the importance of research, best practices, and the principles of philanthropy. Our goal is to guide and encourage the youth to make informed and impactful charitable contributions, igniting a lifelong passion for giving back to the community.
Not only does the Oak Leaf Legacy program offer invaluable education and skill development, but it also provides a practical means for young philanthropists to make a real difference. With a $1,000 donation as part of the program, half of this amount is directed to a 501c3 organization chosen by the participant, allowing them to actively support causes close to their hearts.
The registration process is made simple through the Oak Brook Park District Foundation. Furthermore, a portion of the registration fee directly contributes to the child's chosen 501c3 organization, emphasizing our commitment to making philanthropy accessible and tangible for our young participants.
The Oak Leaf Legacy program is not just about learning—it's about doing. It's about nurturing a generation of empathetic, knowledgeable, and compassionate leaders who understand the impact of their contributions and stand ready to shape a brighter, more giving future.
Join us in this journey of fostering a culture of giving, empowerment, and community support. Let's inspire the philanthropists of tomorrow today through the Oak Leaf Legacy program. Together, let's make a meaningful difference, one act of kindness at a time.
