With 13 years of teaching philanthropy at Stanford Graduate School of Business behind me, I’ve designed Giving 2.0 ProjectU as an open-source initiative that will make 100 percent of my research, case studies and teaching materials available for free online to any educator wanting to teach philanthropy and any student wanting to learn about it.
The way we are currently giving is not making a big enough dent in these problems. We give with our heart, our most powerful engine for action. However, this engine alone is not enough—it needs fuel and that fuel is innovation. We must strive to make every gift, regardless of its size or form, create the greatest possible impact.
