ACT FOUNDATION FOR B'NAI MITZVAH STUDENTS
The Ansche Chesed Tzedakah Foundation (ACT Foundation) helps B'nai Mitzvah children, as a group, consider their ethical and social obligations. The ACT Foundation is a grant-making foundation that is run by the B'nai Mitzvah students. Participation is voluntary, and each ACT Foundation participant contributes $234 (18, symbolizing life, times 13, symbolizing Bar and Bat Mitzvah age). The ACT Foundation then meets once a month, from September through June, to learn about and choose the projects or the organizations to which the Foundation will make grants. Ansche Chesed believes that thinking and acting together with their peers will help young teens to understand about charitable donations, and to become committed to creating social justice.
