Philanthropy Education

Philanthropy education teaches people about the nonprofit sector and the importance of giving resources (time, skills, money) to improve the world, as well as how to do so in as effective a manner as possible in order to maximize the quality and quantity of resulting “good”. The Life You Can Save’s Giving Game Project has a goal of promoting widespread philanthropy education that will create a culture of informed and impactful giving.
