GivingPoint has truly changed my life! I am so thankful to have gotten involved with this phenomenal organization that is truly devoted to helping out the future of America. As a student myself, I was deeply touched by all the support that they continue to show to all children, young adults, and adults in our community. I have witnessed first hand the impact GivingPoint has had on over thousands of teens and organizations. There is no other organization like GivingPoint and I hope to continue to support them, for they have been supporting me and my passion for years now. Thank you, GivingPoint!

GivingPoint is an outstanding organization and a very impressive tool that allows a connection between students and areas that they wish to make a difference. I think of GivingPoint as a messenger that enables students to put their thoughts and ambitions into action. Not only do the students make an impact in the community, but they also feel good about themselves and have a great sense of gratification after doing so. When I first heard about GivingPoint I thought what a great idea it was and how easy they made it for the students throughout their community. Go GivingPoint! Keep up the amazing work! Never stop!

I've witnessed the impact of GivingPoint, first hand. Through this organization, students are learning about social issues that affect us all then they are gathering the resources and knowledge to make a difference. I've seen young people learn the importance of healthy fruits and vegetables, then use that as inspiration to plant campus gardens in the city and grow their own vegetables. It's an amazing transformation. GivingPoint has welcomed over 6,000 student users in just three years and they are volunteering, learning and developing into smarter, more informed citizens as a result. This organization changes the way students view the world around them.

MyGivingPoint is the best online tool out there for teens today. GivingPoint not only helps teenagers find their passion, it allows teens to go to the next level in volunteerism. Teens can post projects, raise moeny and recruit other teens interested in the same cuase. MyGivingPoint also gives teens the oppurtunity to donate micro-grants to the charity of their choice. This si something very few teenagers are able to do. MyGivingPoint connects civic-minded teenagers who are each trying to have a positive impact on his or her community and shows them that with the help of GivingPoint, they can do even more.
