We believe philanthropic giving can be a meaningful way to live your values and support a cause you are passionate about.

Our philanthropy resources, including speaker events and interactive workshops, help Chicago Booth alumni and students as well as nonprofit and business leaders better understand the state of the philanthropic sector, its challenges, and innovations in the field.

“To meet current needs and long-term social and environmental challenges, we need viable organizations, and viable organizations need flexible institutional support.”
—Bradford Smith, President, Candid
