Developed by Advisors for Philanthropic Impact, Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank provides an opportunity for Palm Beach County youth to secure mentoring and funding for breakthrough community betterment projects.
Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank fuels and inspires Palm Beach County’s next generation of change leaders—our youth. Students identify social issues that confront our community. The program challenges, empowers and equips them to develop and execute sustainable initiatives and solutions to these problems.
Philanthropist-investors fund student initiatives, investing in their community projects. Through one-to-one mentoring, philanthropist-investors fuel students’ desire, helping them execute initiatives while increasing their ability to make meaningful change.
The fundamental aims of Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank are to help shape students’ leadership paths and, through their creative solutions, address and improve social issues in our community.
Every October, students, parents, educators and community advocates considering the Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank competition can and should attend a free informational workshop. Student attendees receive coaching and instruction to properly develop compelling, comprehensive and complete competition applications.
7th to 12th grade students must submit applications by midnight on December 11, 2016.
Winners receive one-to-one mentoring from the philanthropist-investors and up to $15,000 in initiative funding. By leveraging philanthropist-investors’ business and life experience, professional networks and resources, students gain an invaluable understanding of their potential as vital change agents in our community.
Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank projects are at work in our community. The students are at work inspiring fellow young people. Philanthropist-investors experience the tangible effect of their investment and direct action.
It comes full circle when today’s Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank students become tomorrow’s inspiration and leaders. Generation to generation, our community changes for the better.
