What if your employer said you could use your paycheck to cover clothes you wear to work, but not for rent on your apartment? On a lunchbox but not on the pots and pans you use to cook dinner? Many nonprofits regularly face restrictions like these in their funding. Too often, lines are still drawn between the costs directly attributable to, for example, delivering meals or adding beds in a homeless shelter, versus basic business costs like staff payroll, office rent, and heat – not to mention the need to innovate and adapt to changes in community needs and operating environments.
Experiential philanthropy is an innovative teaching and learning approach that allows students to study social problems and then invest funds into nonprofit organizations that they consider to best able to solve the social problems they learn about.
