Philanthropy Practice Fellowship examines philanthropy education

Oct 19, 2013 | Category: CGAP News
Despite the widespread interest in philanthropy, there is currently limited understanding of how philanthropy is being taught as a subject in European universities. To develop a better understanding of the terrain, Charles Keidan, former Director of the Pears Foundation, has been awarded a Philanthropy Practice Fellowship at CGAP Cass. Forming part of the activities funded through the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund Legacy Grant, Charles' fellowship builds on his recent experience at the Stanford Centre on Philanthropy. Working with Cathy Pharoah and Tobias Jung, the work will: provide an initial exploratory map of philanthropy teaching, courses and degrees across European universities; highlight different teaching models and approaches; and critically examine the opportunities and challenges for philanthropy as a subject matter. The findings will be presented in a discussion paper that will be launched in early 2014.
