As a student in our two-semester course Philanthropic Investment for Community Impact, you and your classmates will manage a micro-organization with the purpose of awarding real grants to local not-for-profit organizations that provide high-impact social programs for the community.

You will begin by establishing the values, mission, goals and priorities of the course’s micro-organization. In the next step, you and your classmates will design and implement processes and channels for collecting and evaluating proposals submitted by non-profit organizations, assess the financial and community impact of the organizations and their proposals, select the organizations and proposals in which to invest real money, and assess the performance of previous investments year over year.

Throughout the process, you will work with an Advisory Board of professionals and gain valuable management experience that applies to all industries and sectors.
