grants

All of the author royalties from the sales of Giving 2.0: Transform Your Giving and Our World will be donated to high-impact nonprofits through the Giving 2.0 Grants program!

Through the Giving 2.0 College Chapter Network students in college chapters nationwide will learn and practice strategic philanthropy by participating in a grantmaking cycle. Engaging in an analytic experiential learning process, students will select a high-impact nonprofit to receive their chapter’s annual grant. This grant will further contribute to the chapter effecting specific change as outlined in their year-long social impact goals. The Giving 2.0 Chapter Network grantmaking program takes place throughout the second half of the year, thus allowing chapters to first develop a strong foundation in strategic philanthropy through their guided educational and experiential fall programming.

At the end of the academic year, when all chapters have selected their grantees, each college chapter will have the opportunity to submit an application to the Giving 2.0 team for the chance to win a 1:1 matching grant (up to $2000)! Matching grants are funded by founder Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen’s author royalties received from her New York Times best-selling book, Giving 2.0: Transform Your Giving and Our World. In order to be eligible to win a matching grant, chapters must demonstrate that they followed the Giving 2.0 grantmaking process and that their grantee meets Giving 2.0’s pre-specified criteria. Giving 2.0 matching grants will be awarded to nonprofits selected by chapters who most effectively demonstrated mastery of the Giving 2.0 principles.
