Gain a European perspective on philanthropy
Get a firsthand learning experience in philanthropy from two European countries with the largest nonprofit sectors in the world—the Netherlands and Germany.
In this program, we rotate between lectures on current development in philanthropy and field visits—including service learning—to different types of philanthropic organizations. You’ll learn from Dutch and German professors, researchers, policymakers, and leaders, and also have the opportunity to visit local nonprofit organizations, universities, federal institutions, and philanthropic foundations.
These two countries provide relevant comparative perspectives on philanthropy and public provisions because most basic needs are met through extensive social welfare policies. Their philanthropic organizations are able to concentrate on needs that are not primary public goods and services.
