Giving 2.0 free online philanthropy course

Laura Arrillaga-AndreessenThe Stanford University philanthropy scholar Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen has amassed enough star power over the last 15 years to attract some of the nonprofit world’s brightest lights as guest speakers in her free online course, Giving 2.0: the MOOC.

Through a series of video lectures and case studies, the seven-week course features Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation; Holden Karnofsky, co-founder of GiveWell; an organization that analyzes charity performance; Premal Shah, president of Kiva; and the Australian philosopher Peter Singer.

During the course, each student is supposed to devise a plan for supporting a nonprofit group and explain how he or she would decide how much to give and where to direct the money.

Here’s what students in the course can expect to learn:

  • How to choose and explore an issue they are passionate about. Scott Harrison, founder of Charity: Water, will describe how he built his organization into a fundraising powerhouse
  • Steps for understanding social and environmental matters that might affect their giving.
  • How to find a range of perspectives, metrics, and tools to analyze a charity’s work.
  • In the final weeks of the MOOC, students will take stock of their progress and lay out the next steps to be lifelong, high-impact philanthropists.

The course can be done anytime, at no cost. For more information visit: Giving 2.0 MOOC
