Philanthropy isn’t just the domain of the wealthy. In fact, small amounts can yield big returns, especially when donating to an endowment fund like the Millennium Fund for Children.

Each year, nearly 2.5 million children in the United States experience homelessness, making children the majority of the homeless population.
