Welcome to Seeds of Generosity!

Seeds of Generosity is a nonprofit organization that provides youth with real-life experiences in philanthropy, socially responsible investing, micro-loans to the poor and social entrepreneurship. We find people who are already supporting good causes and invite them to channel some of their funds through schools so students can participate in the giving. Our goal is to inspire generosity for a lifetime.

I'm Karen DeTore, Education Director for Seeds of Generosity. I love working with teachers and students to make magic happen.  Enjoy our site, and let’s see what we can create together!




If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to support our service, 15% is used for our operating costs, 10% is given to the participating schools, and 75% goes directly to the nonprofits, micro-loans to the poor, socially responsible investments benefitting nonprofits, or social entrepreneurship projects chosen by the students. $300 will provide funds for a philanthropy class, and $30 will fund one micro-loan through Kiva.org. Any amount you donate will help. Thank you for helping to plant seeds of generosity in the next generation!


Please email Duane Light, Development Director, for more information.
