TJF's B'nai Tzedek Teen Philanthropy Program

The Tidewater Jewish Foundation is excited to debut an exciting new program just for teens! The B'nai Tzedek Teen Philanthropy Program encourages teens to become involved in tzedakah by establishing a fund for Jewish charitable giving. Opening B'nai Tzedek fund gives your teen a chance to play a part in improving your community and the world. In essence, we are empowering Tidewater's teens to take ownership of their own philanthropy—a valuable lesson that we know pays off!
