The Money JAR Episode #8: The Value of Giving

When we discuss the value of “giving back” with our children, we often think in terms of money.  But what about giving other resources like time?  Listen in as hosts Evan and Todd engage guest expert, Susan Crites Price in a discussion on how to raise conscientious kids who value giving back to their community, be it with money or other forms of philanthropy.


Susan Crites Price, author of The Giving Family: Raising Our Children To Help Others,  is Vice President at the National Center for Family Philanthropy. Her articles have appeared in such publications as Working Mother, Family Life, The Washington Post and The Washingtonian.  In addition, along with her husband Tom, Price co-authored The Working Parents Help Book, a practical guide to juggling kids and careers, which won the Parents’ Choice Award and was a selection of the Scholastic Book Club. She and her work have been featured on Oprah and the Today show.
