Teen Tzedakah

Teen Tzedakah is an innovative Jewish youth philanthropy program where any teen, grade 7-12, can start a fund in our Birmingham Jewish Foundation. This fund will be matched by the Frank and Fred Friedman Family Foundation up to $250. Throughout the year, Teen Tzedakah participants take part in creative programming and activities designed specifically to teach them about philanthropic giving, engage them in charitable work and educate them about various charities. At the end of each school year the teens personally recommend where they would like the proceeds from their funds to be donated based on their personal concerns and interests.
