CINCINNATI — Through a program called Magnified Giving, East Clinton High School students were able to donate $1,500 to two non-profit agencies in Clinton County.
The students were able to award the Clinton County Homeless Shelter a $1,000 check and Kids & Company with $500 at a ceremony held at the Mayerson JCC in Cincinnati.
The students in the Magnified Giving program have been working through a course that Magnified Giving offers, teaching students about philanthropy and the necessary skills needed to become a philanthropist.
They worked through the program and through fundraising were able to participate in the match program where they raised $250 so they could give two grants.
“They worked hard all year and they decided on Clinton County Homeless Shelter and Kids & Company to receive the grant money through the donation from Magnified Giving,” stated a spokesperson.
