Community Happenings

Steamboat Little Givers

This is an ongoing year long program to get kids involved with our community with a goal of FUN and learning.  Throughout the year, we will be completing weekly philanthropy projects focused on helping to better our community.  That’s right, WEEKLY!  Each little giver will be challenged to complete 52 projects throughout 2022!!!  This seems like a huge undertaking, but we believe in the power of motivated kids. Projects will be small (writing a thank you card to a police officer, donating a toy, clean up a trail, etc), but consistent.

We have some ideas of projects, but we are also putting this into the hands of the kids.  During our once a month meetings they will have the opportunity to discuss ideas for the next month’s projects.  These project will be geared for kids ages 4-11, but please don’t let this limit you. We would love photos of your completed projects and your kids actively participating! If you are ok with us sharing your kids photos, please email them to
