In honor of Take Your Child to Work Day, Women in Development of Mercer County invited members to bring their children to the April 23rd Roundtable discussion. The program focused on ways to effectively engage children, tweens and teens in volunteerism and philanthropy. WID members and guests introduced the children attending to philanthropy and explored new ways to think about asking and giving. The WID fundraising professionals shared best practices, strategies and successes in developing the next generation of philanthropic leaders.

Many thanks to WID Board Members, Julie Davidson Meyers, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer, and Patricia B. O’Neill, Managing Partner & Principal Consultant at O’Neill & Associates, LLC for facilitating this special program.
