Magnified Giving, which works to engage students in lifelong philanthropy, is launching a new fundraiser in honor of National Philanthropy Day.
Dubbed the “Giving is Good . . . So is Golf!” Experience, the event will start just a few hours after the National Philanthropy Day Luncheon. That allows time to go back to the office or check messages and change clothes before heading out to Topgolf in West Chester.
The new event (like Topgolf itself) offers a twist on golf: It requires no particular skills or equipment, takes far less time than a round of golf, and is fun for non-golfers and skilled golfers alike. Local celebrities will be on hand to add to the fun.
“It’s a great way to mark National Philanthropy Day, as Magnified Giving teaches philanthropy and magnifies the impact of donors’ gifts to benefit dozens of local nonprofits,” said Kelly Collison, executive director at Magnified Giving.
More than 12,000 students have participated in the Magnified Giving program. They have learned how to evaluate nonprofits and to develop a heart for giving. Since the nonprofit was founded in 2008 by Roger Grein, nearly 350 grants totaling over $408,000 have been awarded to nonprofits.
