Webinar: Progressive Philanthropy in Higher Education

National Association of Scholars

In higher education, the majority of philanthropic support goes to support progressive causes. Donors supporting such initiatives are applauded, while philanthropists who focus on traditionally conservative issues are often viewed with suspicion or vilified on campus.

This has long-term effects, as changes in higher education spill over into the broader culture over time. Undeniably, progressive philanthropy has pursued an effective course for decades. Can conservative philanthropists learn anything useful from the success of progressive philanthropists in higher education? What lessons can we take away from successful case studies of giving in higher education? What implications will it have for our culture if we can articulate a coherent, conservative vision of higher education philanthropy?

Join the National Association of Scholars on June 25th at 2 pm Eastern to be a part of this critical conversation.
