Philanthropy Center

Since the doors to the Philanthropy Center have opened in June of 2010, AMND has aimed to motivate, inspire and empower students’ desires to change the world. We have done so by hosting a range of different classes, programs and lectures at the Center that focus on enriching the altruistic perspectives of teenagers, adults and children alike. The focus of the programs offered through the Philanthropy Center teach the principles and techniques of fundraising in either a two, five or ten hour course. All courses are taught by AMND, Inc. staff which includes certified teachers, Northport High School alumni, and college undergraduate/graduate students from top universities including New York University, Villanova University, Duke University and Columbia University. In addition, the AMND Philanthropy Center Committee, comprised of sixteen high school students, assist our staff at each of the events. It is our mission to team these high school students up as mentors for younger Philanthropy Center students in each class to create a more intimate learning experience. Additionally, the Philanthropy Center hosts monthly children’s events that focus on a specific theme and a charity.
