The David & Frances Brain Center for Community Engagement presents the Jacket Philanthropy Program Awards Ceremony – a culminating celebration of a semester-long service-learning and philanthropy initiative. The Jacket Philanthropy Program is a student-led philanthropy initiative implemented through academic service-learning. Students in 4 participating courses provide direct service throughout the semester to local nonprofit organizations. In addition to their service experiences, students have the opportunity to award grant funds to selected organizations.
At the Award Ceremony hear reflections from BW students about their service and grant-writing experiences, and witness the awarding of $20,000 in grants to local community partners.
