Wednesdays: 11/12, 11/19, 12/3, 12/10 | 6:00 - 7:45 p.m.
The Chabad Philanthropy Fellowship is a four week long project consisting of text-based discussions, visiting speaker dinners, and a final reflection paper. Combining both individual and collaborative exercises, the Fellowship will be focused on encouraging Princeton students to join, and lead, the movement of young philanthropists across the world.
Speakers and texts would concentrate on a theme of having an entrepreneurial mindset in philanthropy ("being the change you want to see in the world") and students should be thinking about their own efforts, present and future, to contribute to charitable organizations.
The first meeting for the Philanthropy Fellowship will be held on November 12, 2014 and will introduce basic concepts and ideas of philanthropic thought as well as begin a conversation among Fellows about their own ideals concerning charity and donation. Fellows will be chosen after potential participants fill out an application with basic personal information and an essay describing their interest in the program. The group will meet weekly for 4 weeks for a dinner and discussion.
During the final meeting date for the program, December 10th, the group will revisit how they conceive of philanthropy, how they see themselves giving to charity in the future, and ways in which they can begin that process now. As a capstone to their experience, participants will write three pages on what they gained from their participation.
The goal is to foster a spirit of philanthropy among students, to show you that philanthropy is accessible, and to provide you with the ideas and tools to make impacts through giving.
