For the first week of this course, you will understand how to approach your giving in new ways, why you give, how to give in a way that matters more and how technology is redefining and democratizing effective philanthropy. You will begin evolving your philanthropic process by more deeply exploring an issue you are passionate about.

Week 1 consists of 6 sections: Course Introduction, Why We Give, What is Philanthropy?, Philanthropy and Technology, What Makes a Gift Effective, and Issue Area Selection. See the MOOC Resources page for associated handouts and workbook sections for this week.
