TTN’s Giving Circle members pool their individual contributions, and have given an award to a non-profit each year since 2013. In May, we granted $20,000 to Turning Points for Children, a program that supports youth aging out of foster care.
The 250 youth who age out of the foster care system in Philadelphia each year usually have no resources and no family to support them. Having spent their entire lives in foster care, often moving three or more times into the homes of strangers, these young adults frequently face lives of homelessness, and addition.
The Giving Circle’s $20,000 grant will provide intense, individualized assistance with housing, education and life and job skills through a model that has proven to be successful in other parts of the country.
Join us to learn more about our most recent award, from young people who made successful transitions and are eager to share their stories. In addition, we will show a video highlighting the outstanding nonprofits that have received our grant in previous years.
Want to know why Giving Circle members are so passionate about what we do? We are happy to tell all!
Optional dinner following program. The dinner cost is $25 paid at the dinner. During dinner we will continue our conversations and explore options for TTN members who want to have a noticeable impact on their communities.
