Have a photo of philanthropy in action you want to share? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your pic, a caption, and a short description of your organization.
Urban Gateways was founded over five decades ago to address the lack of artistic exposure in Chicago-area schools, especially in the inner city. The organization believes the arts to be an essential part of a well-rounded education and strives to provide high-quality art experiences with professional artists to Chicago's youth, their families and their communities.
Foundation Ana and Vlade Divac
Foundation Ana and Vlade Divac was founded in 2007 in Serbia to provide aid to civilians, especially refugees and their housing challenges. This photo gathered national representatives of the four main religions in Serbia, along with the leader of the foundation, who sent messages to the Serbian people, encouraging them to support refugees coming through the country. The foundation has provided help for over 80,000 refugees since its creation and remains very active in providing basic necessities to this population.
North Star Youth Court in Action!
North Star Youth Court has a mission to reduce juvenile crime while promoting restorative justice and alternative dispute resolutions, resulting in a safer community. To that end we participate in projects that will benefit the youth and families in our Fairbanks, Alaska community. This picture shows our youth group delivering 150 care bags, which they packed themselves, to social agencies in our town.
