MGMT 5018: Philanthropy & Fundraising Strategy

2 Credits

This brief experiential course explores the evolving world of philanthropy and provides an opportunity to directly influence a real-life nonprofit’s funding strategies. It shows students how, despite resource constraints, nonprofit organizations can effectively build meaningful engagement and financial support around society’s most pressing needs. It provides an immersive experience – supported by a professional ecosystem – where students can learn, be inspired and leave this class more driven (and capable) to be “a force for good.” By the end of this course, students will have gained hands-on consulting experience in partnership with nonprofit organizational leaders, active consultants and major philanthropists. They will have devised and presented implementable strategies at the “virtuous nexus” between potential donors and their client’s organizational needs - solutions which increase engagement and promote lasting symbiotic relationships between the private and nonprofit sectors. They will be well-positioned to make a significant positive impact throughout their careers in the Twin Cities and beyond.
