A new class at Northwestern University called “Learning Philanthropy and Engaging in the Study and Practice of Giving” will focus on the history of philanthropy and giving, and enable students to put what they learn into practice. The students will be given $100,000 and will decide to which organization(s) they will give the money.
This is such an interesting, innovative and practical idea for a college class. It reminds me of our Jewish Teen Philanthropy Program at Yeshivat Noam, but on a much larger scale. I hope that classes like this will inspire other programs and teach young adults and others about meaningful and effective ways of giving.
