The event is free and open to the public.

“Our goal is to equip parents and educators with information and strategies to help foster and promote the innate compassion of the children and young people in their lives,” said BFP Founder Rekstad. “Our children have big hearts, and we hope that action on behalf of parents will celebrate their urge to give, thus inspiring a lifetime of contribution.”
Boulder Country Day School has a long tradition of providing its students with opportunities to participate in community service and encourages activities that empower students to make a positive impact. “By inviting parents to join us in that effort, and giving them the tools to do so, we are building a culture of giving that will stay with our young people in the years and decades after graduation,” added Susan Boyle, BCD Director of Admission and Marketing.
As part of the November 12 event, BCD students and alumni will share their philanthropic experiences and unique family cultures that support their drive to make an impact.
Parents will leave the event with a strong understanding of the following:
• The Parental Role – Shaping a Child’s Philanthropic Values
• Age Appropriate Pathways to Philanthropic Engagement
• Developing a Family Philanthropy Mission Statement
• Practical Guidance on How and Where to Engage Your Children in the Community
• College Admissions: Understanding the Role of Philanthropy on Your Child’s Resume
