What is SEED?
With an eye towards building a brighter future, members of REAP experienced a grassroots effort that was exciting. The children of many members began to inquire about philanthropy and ask questions like “What is a Giving Circle?”, “What is the Men of Distinction Dinner? and “How can I get involved?”
Before long, SEED was born which stands for Students Engaged in Ethical Donations (SEED), which is a philanthropic initiative for black youth in high school or college to share their time, talents and treasures with their community. While encouraging the youth to give back and teaching to them principles to build generational wealth, it was important that SEED become a part of REAP’s journey, and train to become legacy givers.
Ultimately, SEED members will utilize their time and energy to make meaningful impact in their communities. SEED will fund smaller organizations throughout the valley, some student led and others that serve the youth.
