GOVT114 CM - Philanthropy, Voluntarism, and Nonprofits: Law, Public Policy and Leadership

You will likely work or volunteer for, lead, or govern a not-for-profit organization. Including churches, universities, museums, and even the Salvation Army and the Gates Foundation, the size, strength, and breadth of the non-profit sector is uniquely American. Why and how do diverse individuals come together to fulfill both their individual needs and those of their communities? Who gives and volunteers and why? This course will broadly address key topics of the non-profit sector, including: leadership, governance, accountability, and the appropriate public policy framework for determining ideal allocations of social problem-solving among government, for-profit, and not-for-profit.
