Students4Giving: Inspiring Philanthropy's Future 2008-2009 Request for Proposals

Campus Compact and the Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund are delighted to announce the 2008-2009 Students4Giving Request for Proposals to educate and inspire a new generation of philanthropists in a new era of giving. The Students4Giving initiative will provide colleges and universities with the educational resources and initial funding to engage students in strategic grant making activities within the context of community-based learning. Campus Compact member colleges and universities are invited to respond to this Request for Proposals to be eligible to participate in Students4Giving as one of ten new programs located throughout the country. Each participating school will be allocated $15,000 in assets earmarked exclusively for charitable purposes which will be managed through a Giving Account, a donor-advised fund at the Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund. Participating programs will also receive additional funds for administrative support.

Proposals must be received by Campus Compact by 5:00 p.m. EST Friday, June 20, 2008.
