Mission of The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to teaching children the merits of helping worthwhile causes and the positive results of their hard work.

The charity targets families with school-aged children to teach the priceless lessons of giving through hands-on projects. Children can learn wonderful lessons as they offer their time and energy. Our hope is that this spirit of giving will grow with the children, as they become the community leaders of tomorrow. 

How it all got started…

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”       -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We founded The Giving Tree because of our belief that children can make a difference in our world.

We see the pain, inequality, and powerlessness suffered by so many because of racism. Now more than ever, helping our children understand how they can improve our world is paramount through kindness, compassion, and involvement.

We will continue to provide opportunities for children to give back and to search for ways to help the underserved and support all searching for justice.
