The Learning by Giving Foundation (LxG) partners with 35 colleges and universities across the country to teach effective giving and distribute grant funds to high-impact nonprofits.

In a LxG class, the coursework is focused on experiential learning, where students determine how to make an impact in their community through a rigorous, semester-long grantmaking process. Under the guidance of their instructor, students research community needs, conduct due diligence, and determine how to distribute real grant dollars to effective nonprofit organizations in their institution’s backyard.

LxG undergraduate students are part of a unique network that spans diverse disciplines — from English to Economics, Sociology to Political Science — and reaches across the country.
