Corporate and Foundation Philanthropy
Examine the motivation of corporate and foundation giving by reviewing institutional philanthropy’s past and current trends and priorities, competing forces, characteristics, and strategic issues. Consider the roles of the CEO, development staff, grant writers, shareholders, investors, employees, and community. As this is a unique moment in history for everyone including those involved in philanthropy, this semester will integrate the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the focus on racial and social justice as a result of the Black Lives Matter movement.
