This is an applied unit in which students explore philanthropyâ€™s strategic role supporting organisations and initiatives aiming to address social and environmental challenges.
It examines how philanthropy fits within the broader social impact ecosystem. Students will critically reflect on the different approaches which can enhance philanthropyâ€™s impact, and consider how the role of philanthropy is evolving.
Students will develop an understanding of the key components of grantmaking processes, including the legal and regulatory context and ethical and governance challenges.
As this is an experential learning unit, students design and implement a process that culminates in making a real grant to an organisation.
