The goal of the University of Kentucky Center for Student Philanthropy is simple. It wants students to know and spread the joy of philanthropy wherever they go.
Students make an investment in their futures when they give back. Not only are they strengthening the organizations and communities they serve, they are improving themselves. We will educate students about the need for philanthropy, give them opportunities to participate in philanthropic events on campus and celebrate the many ways donors and volunteers enhance the University of Kentucky. The benefits of charitable giving last for a lifetime. We want to walk alongside students from the moment they set foot on campus, encouraging them to harness their passion, amplify their giving and make an impact on the world.

I have seen different ways that volunteer work can change people's lives. Not only the lives of the people being helped, but the lives of the volunteers are changed by their work.
