Featured Speaker: Premal Shah, President, Kiva.org
Sponsor: Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership

The students from “The Economics of Philanthropy” class (UGBA 196) and the Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership invite you to join us at a FREE event to learn about becoming effective philanthropists, hear from the President of Kiva, Premal Shah, watch live artistic performances (spoken word, hip hop, and Brazilian drumming), and enjoy free food and drinks. Local nonprofits will also table at the event, providing attendees with the opportunity to get connected and learn about a wide array of local service opportunities and programs.

About Economics of Philanthropy (UGBA 196): This Haas School of Business undergraduate class is the fruition of Eric Rodriguez’ (recently featured at TedxBerkeley) winning proposal to UC Berkeley’s Bears Breaking Boundaries Curricular Innovation Contest. The class is centered on teaching its students how to become effective philanthropists and was given a $10,000 contribution from Doris Buffett, president of the Sunshine Lady Foundation, to do so. We have selected two nonprofits, Spark and Swords to Plowshares, to receive the grant and both nonprofits will also be presenting at the symposium.
