Welcome to the Google+ page for The Learning by Giving Foundation. We look forward to connecting with all those interested in teaching and learning about philanthropy at the undergraduate level.
The Learning by Giving Foundation, created in the summer of 2011 by Doris Buffett, supports high quality undergraduate philanthropy courses nation-wide with grants of $10,000 to each class to distribute to local nonprofit organizations. The courses give students the opportunity to develop their own philanthropic strategies and create an impact where it is needed most in the community.
The Foundation’s Online Courseware Project makes materials and resources about teaching philanthropy available to all through the Foundation’s website.
