Colorado Gives Day

This winter quarter, Londell Jackson will be teaching Philanthropy Roles and Practices (ORL 4600) on campus. Today he is busy with Colorado Gives Day, an initiative designed to increase Colorado philanthropy through online donations, and an opportunity for nonprofits to have their donations matched (hint: only a few hours left to donate).

Londell has a long and rich history in the Philanthropy area. He is uniquely suited to teach Philanthropic Roles and Responsibilities, a class which is unique—very few programs talk about the long history, roles, and unique contributions of the nonprofit sector. In this class, you will learn about the history of philanthropy, global philanthropy, mission-driven organizations, and the differences between nonprofit and government services for a community.

This spring, students who complete the ORL 4600 course and live in the metro-Denver area will have the opportunity to participate in a learning service course. This hands-on project will allow students to work with the United Way—a unique and valuable opportunity!

A Denver native, Londell Jackson has worked with various organizations throughout the Denver area including the Gill Foundation, Denver Employment Alliance, National Endowment for Financial Education, and Center for Work Education and Employment. Currently, Londell serves as Director of Education & Programs for Colorado Nonprofit Association.

Classes begin January 6, so don’t delay—sign up today! Register here.
