Students in Jonathan Hannah’s Philanthropy and Society class at the University of Notre Dame, a partnership with the Philanthropy Lab, spent the fall semester researching and evaluating local nonprofits for consideration for thousands of dollars in grant money.
Hannah is director of the Program on Church, State and Society at the Notre Dame Law School. The Philanthropy Lab supports philanthropy education at colleges and universities in the U.S.
The students, working in teams of five, consulted with Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns, conducted online research, performed site visits and solicited and evaluated proposals to determine which organizations best aligned with their values and would most benefit from their support.
They also learned about the social, organizational and financial aspects of philanthropy from Hannah and guest speakers including Lou Nanni, who oversees development at Notre Dame in his role as vice president for University relations.
