Giving With Purpose
Northeastern Students4Giving Director Rebecca Riccio, in partnership with the Learning by Giving Foundation, has created GivingWithPurpose, the first ever Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) focused on philanthropy and informed civic engagement. By taking this course, anyone can learn tips and strategies on effective charitable giving through six compact, online classes.
Rebecca’s lessons will feature interviews with guest speakers who have incorporated philanthropy into their lives, such as Cal Ripken Jr., Soledad O’Brien, Warren Buffett, Doris Buffett, Tom Werner, and Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, better known as Ben & Jerry.
Watch the video below to learn more about the course.
Interested in taking the course this summer? Registration for GivingWithPurpose is free and open to anyone.
