Through a look at past and present philanthropy, we gain an awareness and understanding of the variety of ways we take action in the name of civic virtue. We reflect on our own past, present and future philanthropic acts.
Participants become familiar with philanthropy-related terms and a variety of philanthropy in the past. We consider the impact of people who contribute in large and small ways to the health of the community.
Participants gain awareness about the work of local nonprofit organizations through research and by interviewing representatives. They summarize the mission, needs, and impact of the organizations on the community.
We define civic virtue and give examples of ways to exhibit civic virtue for the common good.
