This year’s program will offer teens an opportunity to make an impact in the world by giving them $10,000 to allocate to local nonprofits of their choice.

Pittsburgh teenager Eli Wynn remembers the Samuel M. Goldston Teen Philanthropy Project well.Though he participated virtually in 2021 due to the pandemic, the program’s goal was the same as in years past: teaching Jewish teens about the importance of social justice philanthropy. “At the end, we did give out money to people in need,” said Wynn, 16, of Regent Square, a junior at Pittsburgh Allderdice High School. “So, I feel like I did a good thing.”
