Wesleyan Class Grants $10,000 to Local Non-profits

The Hartford Courant featured a new class, Money and Social Change, offered at Wesleyan in the fall semester. Students were asked to explore the question, “How is money used to change the world?” The class undertook a rigorous survey of 400 non-profit organizations in the greater Middletown area, and through a multi-round elimination process, eventually chose four receive $10,000 in available funds. Funding was provided to the class by the Learning by Giving Foundation, established in 2011 to promote the study of the nonprofit sector and philanthropy by undergraduate students.

A story about the course also ran in The Middletown Press.
