Application Now Available!

One of the goals of Brandeis University’s Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy is to encourage social justice.

Generous U is a contest that helps promote that goal. Generous U awards a $10,000 Prize (and a runner-up prize) to college students who propose ways of increasing philanthropy on their campus. The Generous U contest spotlights student giving and its positive impact.

Be a part of this nationwide contest to make college campuses more philanthropic! Eligible student groups should submit an Intent to Apply and then prepare a proposal and short video, demonstrating how your group increases philanthropy and/or philanthropic values on your campus. Applications are due Friday, March 11, 2016.

You can also use Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with everything Generous U!
