The Student Philanthropy Board is a student leadership and mentoring initiative supported by the Women’s Philanthropy Board. As part of its mission, WPB is committed to inspiring, educating and enabling future generations of philanthropists. This organization is designed to support students who are seeking the Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies minor and who aspire to work in a nonprofit field.
The SPB will provide avenues for students to explore philanthropic engagement, nonprofit leadership, financial sustainability, community involvement and professional development in order to develop knowledge and skills for future service as nonprofit professionals or philanthropists.
The mission of the SPB is to assist students to develop their full leadership potential; achieve independence as financial decision makers and donors; participate in the philanthropic cycle; discover the roles of nonprofits and their impact in communities; and network with nonprofit and philanthropic leaders.
