I've been talking a lot lately about JFN's 2021 virtual conference on March 15-17.
But I want to make sure you know about another important event, one happening right afterward: Jewish Teen Funders Network's Virtual Summit, on March 17-18.
An important component of JFN's commitment to building strategic philanthropy within our community and ensuring a strong Jewish future, Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN) is the central resource for over 100 Jewish teen philanthropy programs in North America, Israel, and internationally. Programs are housed at many different host organizations such as schools, synagogues, community centers, Federations, foundations, and camps. Jewish youth philanthropy programs provide leadership training and offer a unique opportunity for understanding Jewish values, experiencing tzedakah firsthand, and giving back to the community.
The JTFN Virtual Summit features a range of workshops, international site visits, and virtual experiences for lay leaders, educators, and professionals in the field of Jewish youth philanthropy, and beyond. Attending is a great way for you to learn about the field of Jewish youth philanthropy and to understand the power and influence young people can have in our world today.
If you wish to attend, or if you have grantees who serve Jewish youth, please register here, or share this opportunity with them. This year, JTFN is also offering opportunities for you to gift a registration. Email [email protected] if you are interested in paying to send someone to the Summit.
By investing in Jewish youth today through philanthropic education, we are ensuring a bright future for the Jewish community.
