The LearningbyGivingFoundation announces in the first week
the first ever Massive Open Online Course (M.O.O.C.) in charitable
giving, more than 10,000 individuals interested in making a difference
in their communities have registered to take the course. GivingWithPurpose
is free and offers everyone the opportunity to make real grants using
the foundation’s money. Registration is still open through the end of
the month of July, so join the class today at www.learningbygivingfoundation.org.
The first of six classes is now live, featuring interactive video
lessons by Rebecca Riccio, the Founding Director of a Northeastern
University experiential philanthropy education program. In this first
class, Rebecca interviews guest speakers Warren Buffett and Doris
Buffett as students in the class hear how they think about philanthropy
and what motivated them each to give.
“We hope that anyone who is interested in making a difference in their
community this summer will go and sign up for ‘GivingWithPurpose’
today.” said Doris Buffett, first benefactor and Founder of the LearningbyGivingFoundation.
She continued, “Every person who signs up will learn how to invest
charitable dollars in their communities. I am thrilled that this course
gives them the chance to apply what they learn by distributing our money
to where it is needed most.”
Registration is open throughout the month of July. Sign up for GivingWithPurpose
today at www.learningbygivingfoundation.org.
