Pursuing Philanthropy: Bruce Levenson’s Successful Hunt

Bruce Levenson is best known as an owner of a prominent NBA team, but he also has some renown as a philanthropist. Recently he’s doubled-down on that reputation. Bruce and Karen Levenson made donations which facilitated The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland. The Center has been successfully operating for three years, and as PR Newswire reports, regularly drums up around twenty thousand dollars a year between its varying courses. (That’s: ten thousand dollars a semester.) The Center has become the nation’s favorite–at least as far as Washington D.C. and PR Newswire are concerned. Apparently recruiters from nonprofits in D.C. regularly go through the University of Maryland’s Philanthropy Center. This is good news for students at the University, and nonprofit organizations in general. The Center is expanding, too. This year marks the first where a dormitory had been added to The Center; part of a new “living and learning” program. All students at the University of Maryland funnel through The Center at one time or another. Bruce Levenson has made it clear this is a primary feature of said Center’s existence. Levenson wants The Center to ensure “…every student attending the University of Maryland graduates as an informed and motivated philanthropist.” As it stands, the Levenson’s efforts seem as though they’ll positively impact not just the local community surrounding The Center, or the nation, but the world itself. That would be Bruce’s desire, anyway. Whether or not this is ultimately the case, The Center is certainly doing good for society. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html

    Maybe to reconcile with the past some people have to do some good in this world or to learn from what they have saved. Those people like uk assignment writing help has been useful for me need to apply to Bruce as well and others. The same behavior is seen with successful people all over the world because they put in so much energy in the work that they do.
