  • What does the Learning by Giving Foundation fund?

    The Learning by Giving Foundation only funds undergraduate courses at colleges and universities across the country that offer high quality experiential for-credit courses in philanthropy i.e., those that combine the study of theory with the practice of philanthropy.

  • Can my college or university become a Learning by Giving partner school?

    We are very interested in welcoming new partner schools and expanding the Learning by Giving family. We currently have a waiting list of potential new partners. We work directly with professors when adding a new partner school. If you are a professor, please send us a message about your course by visiting our contact us page. If you are a student, please have your professor or administration contact us.

  • Does the Learning by Giving Foundation make grants for anything other than philanthropy education programs?

    The Foundation’s core mission is to support the teaching of philanthropy and nonprofit studies at the undergraduate level on college and university campuses nationwide. We have created an efficient platform for distributing capital to American communities that need it the most through experiential philanthropy education. We only make grants that fulfill our core mission.

  • Can my non-profit organization apply directly for a grant?

    Please note that the Foundation only makes grants through our online courses, and the colleges & universities we partner with for our undergraduate courses. We do not make grants to individuals and cannot respond to such requests.
