Northwestern Students to Give $100,000 Away As Part of Class

The Northwestern University class hopes to let 33 students explore philanthropy with real money.


What would you do if you had $100,000 to giveaway or donate for a cause? That’s exactly what 33 Northwestern University students will be learning as part of a class offered through the School of Education and Social Policy during the Spring Quarter, Daily Northwestern reported. 

The money was made possible through an initiative by the Once Upon a Time Foundation of Fort Worth, Texas, and the course is designed to force students to put theoretical concepts to use with students deciding whether to give the $100,000 to one organization or divided it among several recipients, Daily Northwestern reported.
