PULSE Youth Pods

Youth philanthropy is a hot topic!  Increasing numbers of teens are being taught the fundamentals of charitable giving.  Although the youth philanthropy movement is too new to tell for sure, early signs suggest it operates as a two way street.  Charities breed habits of giving early on and youths sometimes turn their lives around dramatically thanks in part to the charitable experience.


P.U.L.S.E. (Philanthropists Utilizing Lifelong Service and Education) of Noble County consists of 15 members, 5 from each school corporation in Noble County ranging from 8th grade to 12 grades.  The group meets monthly and its support includes funds given annually by the Dekko Foundation.  P.U.L.S.E. members utilize those dollars to operate and allocate some to be given out in grants to Noble County organizations.
