Professor Nora Silver and members of the Strategic Philanthropy Class of 2011 – Strategic Giving: How Informed Donors Maximize Social Impact

[60 min 18 sec] – Featuring students from the Strategic Philanthropy Class of 2011 and Nora Silver, Adjunct Professor and Director of the Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership

Learn the tools that strategic donors use to maximize the value of their dollars: theory of change, giving criteria, nonprofit assessment, and social impact measurement. Wise donors know how to navigate the constant requests for monetary contributions. This workshop is based on an undergraduate class that teaches the ins and outs of informed giving. Thanks to the generous support of Doris Buffett of The Sunshine Lady Foundation, the class gives away $10,000 in gifts to nonprofits each year. Students and their instructor will help guide you through the curriculum, which won the “Bears Breaking Boundaries Curricular Innovation Award” in 2009.
