Students Learn About the Hard Choices of Philanthropy

"Students from the new public policy class “Leadership in Civil Society: Philanthropy in the Nonprofit Sector” awarded a total of $40,000 in grants to eight Upper Valley nonprofits Thursday, capping off months of work identifying and narrowing down proposals from some 30 area organizations.

Ronald Shaiko, senior fellow and associate director of curricular and research programs for the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, designed the class with support from the Center for Social Impact and a $40,000 grant from the national Once Upon a Time Foundation’s Philanthropy Lab, which supports philanthropy education at U.S. colleges and universities."
