Editor's Notes (Patricia O. Bjorhovde).

1. Teaching philanthropy to children: Why, how, and what (Patricia O. Bjorhovde)
How and when is the value of philanthropy learned, and are we teaching the right things the right way? This chapter presents the results of a recent study on teaching philanthropy and identifies key concepts being taught and teaching methods being used as a way to look at quality and comprehensiveness.

2. Speaking to a higher authority: Teaching philanthropy in religious settings (Richard J. Bentley).
Religion and religious traditions are a major influence on American philanthropy. By extension, congregations and faith-based youth organizations play a significant role in teaching young people about philanthropy.

3. Learning to Give: Teaching philanthropy K-12 (Kathryn Ann Agard).
Because K-12 schools reach all children in the United States, they are the logical place for philanthropy education to take place. Learning to Give is a comprehensive curriculum that incorporates philanthropy into the core school curriculum in Michigan and is spreading to schools across the country.

4. Teaching the next generation about philanthropy: A case study of the AFP New Jersey chapter's Youth in Philanthropy Program (Katherine Falk).
The author gives an account of how volunteers in an AFP chapter designed and now operate a successful Youth in Philanthropy program that is sought-after by schools across New Jersey and serves as a model for other AFP chapters with Youth in Philanthropy programs.

5. Developing habits of giving and serving: The heart of the youthserving organization (Janet R. Wakefield).
Community Partnerships with Youth, Inc. brought together seven youthserving organizations in Indiana to create a sequential curriculum for philanthropy designed specifically for youth-serving organizations to use to help young people become community trustees and develop lifelong habits of giving and serving.

6. The Power of YOUth in Philanthropic Fundraising (Nancy Swanson).
Can young people raise money without selling products, and can they learn to be ethical philanthropic fundraisers? This chapter describes a youthserving national organization that is developing a new curriculum to do just that.

7. Philanthropic studies curricula in higher education (Robert F. Ashcraft).
Philanthropic studies programs are among the fastest-growing areas of study in higher education. The author examines divergent views about their place in the university and college curriculum, and one particular example--the American Humanics model.
