For $400, an individual can sponsor the Penny Harvest in one school, providing the teacher training, curriculum and tools that maximize the program's civic, social and academic benefits. On average, students in each school collect and give out $1,000 in grants to charities they choose (all from pennies!), making your $400 go even further to help people in need.

Sponsors receive an end of year report listing the causes and charities children in their sponsored school decided to support, and have the opportunity to visit their school and see student grant making in action. To sponsor a Penny Harvest school, make a donation here.
