Start a Snowball, Inc. encourages kids of all ages to engage in philanthropic and community service activities. The organization believes that even one child with the right intentions and support can start a project that seems small in the beginning and eventually grows (“snowballs”) into something that inspires and benefits an entire community. In order to help kids kick off their philanthropy efforts, Start a Snowball awards $100 in seed funding for projects taken on by individuals or organizations. To be eligible, projects must be led by youth between the ages of 5 and 18 and have the intention of doing good. There is no deadline. To learn more, click here.
