Non-Profits & Philanthropy: You Really Can Change the World Half Block
What’s this class about?
From low-budget, two-person shops to century-old institutions with budgets in the millions, non-profits tackle some of our country’s most pressing challenges and preserve some of the world’s most precious places. This Half Block course will help you to think about the unique opportunity you have to begin planning the ways you might contribute your time, energy, and skills to promote health, equity, peace – whatever it is you care most about – in your life beyond CC.
Co-taught by two Colorado College alumni with extensive experience in philanthropy and non-profit management, Heather Carroll ’89 and Michelle Chalmers ’89, it will overview the complex web of individuals and organizations that make up the non-profit sector and equip you with knowledge of how you, too, can make a difference in the world.
What are the times and dates?
The first week of Half Block: January 7-11, with class from 9am-noon.
Who should sign up for this course?
Anyone who is interested in a career in non-profit or philanthropic work, who wants to know how individuals can make an impact on initiatives they care about, or who is just interested in understanding how the sector works.
