Support or join the next generation of philanthropists
The Emerging Philanthropist Program (EPP) seeks to engage Harrisburg’s emerging business and community leaders with the great possibilities that lie within philanthropic endeavors in our region. EPP provides resources and educational opportunities for those who wish to be actively engaged in philanthropic endeavors.
In the culminating experience, the class applies their newly learned community and grantmaking skills by awarding a grant to a nonprofit organization in a funding priority chosen by the class after assessing community needs. Since 2014, the Emerging Philanthropist Program has granted $25,000 to nonprofit organizations serving the Harrisburg area.
