“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little"
Giving is a gift in and of itself; we feel good when we give. There is actually research that shows our brains respond in the same way to giving as it does to other things that we like. But more than how we feel, giving is an opportunity for change. Regardless of your age, income, or profession, you can give something.
Giving is an opportunity for everyone.
Think of how exciting that is! You can do something. You can make a difference! Lasting change can only come when everyone gives and is involved. And when you give, you also inspire others and serve as an example for them. The Giving Course is meant for individuals with any level of wealth who want to donate, volunteer, and advocate for a better world.
Whether you have a lot or a little, you can give.
The course will show you how to create a giving plan, but really it is meant to start you on a journey of giving. You will also join a community of others like you who want to find meaning and make a difference.
This course gives you the knowledge and tools you need to be an informed giver. The course includes 7 lessons that can be completed over 1-3 weeks. Each lesson features a written (or audio) component that can be read in one sitting. There are resources for each lesson that include videos, tools, and further reading. You will learn:

financial donations, volunteering, and advocating
