Bruce Levenson and his wife have been reported to have given over $3 million in seed money to allow the University of Maryland to build a center made specifically for the study of giving. This center is going to teach students how to manage nonprofit companies, or they can learn how to start their own companies when they want to give their money back to the community. PR Newswire has reported this revolutionary donation to a university so that students can learn something that is completely new to many businesses.
The students at the University are not going to be encouraged to throw their money around, but they are going to be encouraged to learn what it takes to run a nonprofit. They are going to get information that is going to teach them to respect the companies that give away money, and they are going to make sure that they are giving their money away the right way.
Most students who come to the school are going to get a new appreciation for the way that nonprofits run. They can learn how to give their money away, and they can learn how to work philanthropy into their business plans.
