In 2004, based on programs she had seen in other communities, Lynn Schusterman decided that she wanted to begin a youth philanthropy program in Tulsa. Lynn envisioned a program where local teens would become philanthropists in their own right, engaged and excited about participating in the civic and philanthropic life of their community.
