Philanthropy, Leadership and Careers That Make a Difference
A collaboration between the Third Millennium Initiative and Learning to Give
The Third Millennium Philanthropy and Leadership Initiative (Millennium), in collaboration with Learning to Give, is pleased to educate young people about America’s vibrant philanthropic heritage. Our rich, shared history of giving is a thread that connects all Americans. Men, women, and children of every race, religion, culture, and ethnicity have contributed substantially to help improve the lives of their neighbors, their nation, and our world. Response to recent national and international tragedies is proof that Americans continue to take action when others face hardship and need.
