Awardee Profile
Eva Dickinson

 

We are honored to recognize Eva Dickinson as the recipient of our 2014 Children in Philanthropy Award.

As a young girl, Eva Dickinson was exposed to the needs of those around her and taught by her church, family and school that taking care of others is a duty for which each person is responsible. To reinforce this, she made “giving jars” as a Lenten activity in Sunday school, which included a set of three jars; one marked “for now” (fun), another “for later” (savings), and the last “for others” (those in need). Into these jars Eva would divide the money she received, a task requiring her to think of others in addition to herself. Eva considers these teachings to be key lessons that help her to regularly remember to prioritize giving of both her time and money to benefit others.

Last summer, Eva stepped forward and volunteered to be one of the leaders for The One Thing project. The One Thing identifies student leaders from Northeastern Ohio and engages them through training and awareness and empowers them to be philanthropic, civic-minded leaders. This project is a way for high school leaders, shapers, motivators, and changers throughout Northeast Ohio to come together to become better leaders and philanthropists for the future by changing the world around them today. In its first year, that project raised nearly $50,000 for various charitable organizations and involved more than 150 students from schools throughout Northeastern Ohio.

Eva also participates in “Crop Walk,” spends hours raising funds for ACCESS (an Akron-based charity helping homeless women and children), helps organize and participates in “Kick it for Cancer,” and recently joined other youth in assisting flood victims in western New York.

Eva’s interest in helping others has culminated in the founding of her own organization called “Ycare” or “YouthCare.” Ycare’s mission is to involve the youth of today in a program dedicated to caring for and helping others in order to help create the kind of future adults the world needs. Through her organization she has, among other things, provided child-sitters for parents who wanted to learn to read, but lack the support to allow them time to do so. Now, as a senior at Our Lady of the Elms High School who will be heading off to college next year, Eva is working on plans to incorporate her love for philanthropic work into her long-term educational and life goals.

The National Philanthropy Day luncheon celebration will be held on Friday, November 14, 2014, at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn. Sponsorships are now available. For more information, click here.
