"Striving to empower a new generation that is knowledgeable in the formal practice of philanthropy."
Student Support Foundation is a youth philanthropy club in high schools and universities across the United States. At the start of each school year each club in good standing will receive $4,000 to make grants in the funding priorities the club has established. It is the responsibility of each individual club to decide how their funds are distributed throughout their school and community. Clubs are required to fundraise $250.00 per year. Each club is required to participate in a "green project" to make help their schools become more environmentally friendly. At the end of each school year, the students are required to submit an annual report, reporting on grants, budgets, and share a success story. SSF strives to give students hands on experience in the grant making process, to make their school and community a better place.
