Women's Philanthropy Institute study shows high percentage of American kids--90%--gave to charity in a two-year period.
"Nine out of 10 children give money to charity, according to a study released Thursday. While some just give pennies, the efforts that parents and others are making to encourage giving show that charities would benefit by doing more to start early to nurture future generations of donors, says Debra Mesch, director of Indiana University’s Women’s Philanthropy Institute and one of the authors of the report." -- Maria Di Mento, Chronicle of Philanthropy
