Launched in October 2014, LAAF.org’s first Philanthropy MOOC aimed to scale access to and participation in philanthropy education globally. Leveraging the best of education technology innovation and Laura’s two decades of philanthropic expertise, this MOOC empowered givers everywhere in the world with knowledge and skills to make the most of whatever they have to give—money, time, expertise, networks and passion. Students had the opportunity to learn from a variety of philanthropic experts and practice their new skills through integrated volunteering and actual grantmaking experiences.
We were thrilled to partner with the Learning by Giving Foundation, and we are deeply grateful for their support and commitment to enhance grantmaking education by funding the MOOC Grantmaking Competition. The list of grantees can be found here.
