Never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts.”
frequently asked questions
Is The Generosity Project affiliated with any religious or political group?
No. Our presentations and any communications are secular and apolitical. We simply hope to instill in all participants the importance of philanthropy and the impact of even small acts of generosity.
Do the children receive any items at the event?
No. We want to demonstrate that people should not expect something in return for their generosity.
What ages can benefit from participating in The Generosity Project?
Large group events that we conduct in schools are appropriate for children from elementary school through high school. Our lessons are geared to the specific age groups at the event. Older children often help with tasks such as set up, helping younger children pack bags, and loading the completed bags for delivery.
The events that we facilitate for small groups to conduct on their own can be for any size organization: families, sports teams, birthday parties, and employee groups, for example.
What if the items donated by parents fall short of what the event needs?
The Generosity Project purchases any items needed to meet the goal for large events. While we request that families donate specific items, there is no pressure on families to donate and all children participate. The Generosity Project accepts donations of appropriate unused items from individuals and businesses on an ongoing basis. We draw on this inventory and TGP monies as needed to have sufficient items for an event.
Are parents and siblings allowed to participate in the event?
We are happy to have family members participate; however, we leave that decision to the group hosting the event.
