Betsy Peterson is a former teacher and children’s book editor. Betsy first learned about the impact of philanthropy education when Learning to Give piloted its lessons in Michigan schools, demonstrating that the skills, joy, and empowerment of philanthropy could be formalized into teachable knowledge and experience when integrated into all K-12 academic subjects. Betsy started at Learning to Give as a consultant and has served as an editor, writer, director of curriculum, and director. She believes that as more youth learn about ways to be generous in community, we all have a stronger and more kind future.
