Philanthropy Education and Public Purpose
At the heart of mission statements of most independent schools is the call to nurture the whole child — to develop their mind and heart. These schools teach caring for others, global awareness, and responsible citizenship, and they are committed to contributing to the good of the local community.
The philanthropy education courses and lessons on this Independent Schools Hub provide creative examples of this "public purpose" work. Enjoy the work of faculty from independent schools across the country that are helping to develop and empower students about giving, serving, and private citizen action intended for the common good.
