The work of non-profit organizations across the world are often invaluable sources of relief for untold numbers of people who are afflicted by the many disasters and crisis our world is prone to house. Whether it is providing clean drinking water to remote villages, shoes for disadvantaged youth, or simply making sure that food does not go wasted non-profit organizations are often responsible for many of the humanitarian efforts across the globe.
But as a new generation of philanthropists is born and the world of business is constantly changing, the next wave of leaders within the non-profit sector need a little more help than the previous generation to fix the world’s problems.
The Do Good Institute and Bruce Levenson
Bruce Levenson, the former owner of the NBA favorites, the Atlanta Hawks, turned philanthropists and non-profit investor, created the Do Good Institute in response to one of the major failings Levenson witnessed during his time within the non-profit sector.
Far too often, UCG chairman Bruce Levenson noticed that some wonderful people leading non-profit organizations with valid motives would watch their organization fall apart for various reasons due to a lack of real-world business skills.
So to better equip the next wave of leaders within the non-profit sector, Bruce Levenson, and the Do Good Institute are aiming to teach the students on the University of Maryland’s campus the necessary skill they will need to become successful leaders in the non-profit sector. The program by the Forbes billionaire is still very much in its early stages of creation has become a student favorite for its unique approach to teaching philanthropy and civics.
