Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in Non Profits : As many lawyers practice public interest law through or with nonprofit organizations, it's important for students interested in this area to have a solid understanding of how such organizations work. Students should consider taking 1 or more courses that offer perspectives on social entrepreneurship and the strategic management of non-profits.

General course Description:

Appropriate for any student driven to effect positive social change from either the for-profit or nonprofit sector, Strategic Philanthropy (GSBGEN 381/ EDUC 377C) will challenge students to expand their own strategic thinking about philanthropic aspiration and action. In recent decades, philanthropy has become an industry in itself - amounting to over $303 billion in the year 2009 alone. This course will provide an overview of the key operational and strategic distinctions between traditional philanthropic entities, such as community foundations, private foundations, and corporate foundations; and contemporary models, including funding intermediaries, open-source models, and venture philanthropy partnerships. Course work will include readings and case discussions that encourage students to analyze philanthropic strategies as they relate to foundation mission, grant making, evaluation, financial management, infrastructure, and board governance. Guest speakers will consist of high profile philanthropists and foundation presidents, as well as Silicon Valley business leaders striving to redefine philanthropic models. The course will culminate in an individual project in which students will complete a business plan for a $10 million private foundation.

Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
