Rosarian AcademyÕs Glocalizers Selected as Top Recipient in Philanthropy Tank Challenge: Win $18,000 to Fight Youth Homelessness
A te of 18 seventh- and eighth-grade Rosarian Academy students, the Glocalizers, was selected as the top recipient and voted audience favorite, winning $18,000, in the Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank challenge on Thursday, March 17. The Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank offered local middle and high school students an opportunity to create and implement innovative solutions to community issues and social problems in Palm Beach County. More than 35 submissions were received, and Rosarian’s Glocalizers te was selected as one of nine finalists.
For this challenge, the Glocalizers are partnering locally with The Lord’s Place to fight youth homelessness in our cities through promoting awareness, making policy recommendations and active participation.
The Glocalizers “pitched” their idea live, on stage on March 17 at the Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace in front of four judges/ philanthropist-investors who each personally committed $25,000–Willi Meyer, Julie Fisher Cummings, Danielle H. Moore, and Eric Becker. Finalists had the opportunity to receive up to $15,000 for their idea and will receive a year of mentoring by a contributing philanthropist.
