Philanthropology FAQs

Who is Philanthropology™ for?

A:

This curriculum is designed for anyone in the philanthropic sector – not just grantmakers – who wants a stronger grounding in its history, current landscape, and potential for the future, all through a lens that centers social justice and equity. Whether you are in an administrative or evaluative role, working as a consultant in the sector, program staff, or a student, Philanthropology™ will ground you in the history and scope of the sector alongside how to develop self-advocacy for your future in the sector. While the curriculum may be most resonant for those with 1-3 years in the sector, anyone seeing a deeper foundation in philanthropy will find value in Philanthropology.

What does the curriculum cost?

A:

Members receive priority to the curriculum and can access the program for $300. A limited number of non-member spots will be available for each offering. Attendees to the conference teaser program will receive a discount towards the pilot offering of the full 2021 curriculum.

Is Philanthropology™ virtual or in-person?

A:

The course is only offered virtually for the time being. 

I lead a chapter / I am connected to a regional PSO - can I bring Philanthropology™ to my region?
