Bruce Levenson: Facilitating Philanthropic Leadership

Written by

There isn’t enough philanthropy in the world, and according to a recent PR Newswire article, that’s a problem Forbes billionaire Bruce Levenson aims to fix. Several years ago, Bruce and Karen Levenson provided donations which became seed money to The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland. They’ve made at least one subsequent donation, and The Center has continuously expanded since their initial input. In fact, The Center has currently grown large enough to add a dormitory, and they’ve become renown enough to be considered among the best philanthropic leadership programs available today by a number of agencies in the nation’s capital. It makes sense such organizations should hold The Center in high esteem. Every semester, between the available classes at The Center some ten thousand dollars are raised and distributed to varying nonprofit agencies. This means every year approximately twenty thousand dollars are raised. Such a thing is a perpetual gift to nonprofit agencies. Not only that, The Center has sent students as far as India in philanthropic pursuits. Maybe this is the reason Karen and Bruce are so proud of their work. Karen has called their donations to The Center the “most profound” impact they’ve had, philanthropically speaking. Bruce has said that the center’s purpose isn’t just philanthropy, but educating “every student attending the University of Maryland” in profound philanthropic principle.  http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html

    Graduate and undergraduate students both work through the center; hopefully it continues to expand. Among those agencies are The Marriott Foundation and The Smithsonian Institute. There are some certainties that the best custom essay writing services could have against these people that is making bulge.
