Young people ages 12-14 are invited to set up a personalized Youth Mitzvah Fund at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
With money donated into the fund by friends and family, teens can grant a portion of the funds each year to the charities of their choice, keeping enough in the fund to last throughout high school. Teens that have opened a Youth Mitzvah Fund are invited to attend three programs on giving, which include nonprofit visits, community service opportunities and discussions on Jewish values of giving.
