A major philanthropist visited our class to hear a run through of our teams’ grant proposal presentations. Although he said he was just going to offer a comment or two, he quickly became engaged in discussion with students and ended up staying well beyond our scheduled time. He told me later that, he had never experienced such energy, commitment, and passion in a class. “They really get it.” he said, They have come to grips with what it means to be a philanthropist and to make hard choices.
