What They Do
The primary goal of The Philanthropy Lab is to ignite students’ interest and participation in philanthropy. We engage college students in philanthropy by giving them the tangible responsibility of directing real money to nonprofit organizations in the context of full-credit undergraduate courses.
Started in 2011, The Philanthropy Lab and its donor partners have given over $8.1 million to build philanthropy education at twenty-five universities across the United States. More than 2,500 students have participated in philanthropy courses affiliated with The Philanthropy Lab.
Support A Course
The Philanthropy Lab provides the initial opportunity to jump start these innovative educational experiences. The program aims to help universities find long-term donors like you to support students’ practical giving experiences, so that we can continue to spread real-world philanthropy education to additional universities.
