Students who study philanthropy in their coursework likelier to be philanthropic in the future (whether through donations or just "believ[ing] they can make a difference").
"A recent report released by the Heller School's Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy, at Brandeis University, points to new insights into building a pipeline to create philanthropists. Drawing from over 1,600 respondents enrolled in college classes where the study of philanthropy is infused into the course material, the report's strong finding is: engaging students in philanthropy through coursework increases the likelihood of future involvement in the sector." -- Claudia Jacobs, Huffington Post
