How can we cultivate a philanthropic tradition within our organizations that builds more resilient and equitable communities? What fundraising models foster those outcomes? Philanthropic giving is a foundational part of our American tradition and culture. In this course, we will consider what values underpin this tradition in the United States and explore how those values can unintentionally reinforce the very power dynamics that philanthropy is trying to address. We will examine a variety of fundraising models, as well as the barriers fundraisers face when trying to transform social structures. Students will explore these and other questions by conducting fieldwork with fundraisers in their local community.
