About Give As We Grow®
For families cultivating a culture of generosity and service, you can’t start too young. Give as We Grow® is your family’s destination for philanthropic education and generosity tracking, with age-appropriate content for children of all ages in the resource library. Grounded in research and developed to respond to an identified need for families, the play-based learning game currently serves child users in the upper-elementary age range.
Identifying passions and seeing progression over time helps intentional parents foster their children’s interests and prepare them for lives of purpose. Throughout their journey, children who track their giving and experiences through this platform can see themes emerge from their own giving history. Our resources and offerings are designed to equip parents and encourage children to give where they go, and give as they grow.

Host a virtual food drive at your holiday gathering
This guide explains what a virtual food drive is and how to host one. Virtual food drives can be a covid-safe way to share resources or celebrate the season with loved ones near and far. They also can help food banks save resources and purchase more fresh foods than a traditional food drive.
What they’re saying
Give Is As We Grow is awesome! It’s just fun – there is no other way to describe it. I love earning heart points to make my garden better.
Annabel K.(player, age 8)
Giving is rooted in empathy, compassion, understanding of humanity, and sharing between people. We are excited to give the next generation of givers tangible, easy, and fun tools like Give As We Grow to spark radical generosity.
Celeste FloresDirector, U.S. + Canada Hub, GivingTuesday
Particularly for younger kids, in-person volunteering may be impossible because of the types of activities and potential risks that nonprofits can’t take on. The virtual environment of Give As We Grow sets kids on a path to generosity before they are able to do in-person service.
Diana HeathChief Operating Officer, NCFP
Collection is innate in kids, which creates a natural opportunity to teach kids financial literacy—about spending, saving, and sharing—early. It’s important for kids to know that not everything that comes to them should stay with them; that it’s important to share.
