Making an Impact

”One thing that I am walking away with from Project Heart is knowing that I helped someone and knowing that I impacted their life.“
- 5th Grade Student, Cache La Poudre Elementary

”This was a great opportunity for our kids to learn more about paying it forward. “
- 4th/5th Grade Teacher, Rivendell School

”Project Heart was well organized, very easy to use and we could modify it to meet our needs. It’s worth your time and effort.“
- 5th Grade Teacher, Cache La Poudre Elementary

”"Many parents, community members, and colleagues were impressed that we were helping kids develop the habit of using their time, talent, or fundraising skills to give back to others. Kids innately want to help others, and this project was an easy and useful way to tap into this desire." “
- 4/5th grade teacher at Cache la Poudre Elementary School

”“I saw [my students] realize there are needs outside of their own and that they can do something to help meet those needs.” “
- 4/5th grade teacher at Cottonwood Plains Elementary School

”Do it! [Project Heart] is a great service learning program. It is well packaged and very easy to teach. Your classroom culture will change for the better! “
- 4/5th grade teacher at Red Feather Lakes Elementary

”I have had a few teachers comment on how respectful my students are to teachers and each other, and how they are always willing to help each other. I'm sure that is partly because of all the emphasis we put on community service and our school as our community.“
- 5th grade teacher at Salida del Sol Academy

”If I were talking to another teacher about Project Heart, I would tell them that they definitely have the time in their day to do it. It doesn’t take that long to do and the results are amazing; that what you get out is way more than what you put in which is a perfect example of philanthropy!“
- 4th grade teacher at Shepardson Elementary

”Having Project Heart…connects you with the students on a deeper level and you all understand that you’re working together to make the world a better place.“
- 4th grade teacher at Shepardson Elementary

We believe one young and inspired mind can change the world – and we’re betting you do, too!

That’s why we’re excited to share with you our philanthropy education curriculum, Project Heart! This innovative curriculum provides teachers with materials, lesson plans and resources to educate students on the fundamentals of philanthropy.

Designed by teachers for teachers, the Project Heart program follows an Understanding by Design (UbD) format and is matched to the Common Core State Standards of Education.

Best of all, Project Heart, a $500 value, is available at no cost to teachers everywhere. The OtterCares Foundation has absorbed all costs associated with this curriculum.

What’s the catch? Nothing. We simply need your help to inspire kids who can change the world!
