Trinity University’s curriculum council has approved my course for Fall 2013.
“Grant-writing and Fundraising” will be the inaugural course in Trinity’s new “Arts, Letters, Enterprise” (ALE) program. ALE is a certificate program that seeks to bridge students’ liberal arts knowledge to their careers by offering courses in business and organizations.
ALE 3301 is a service-learning class. Each student will be partnered with a local non-profit and the final project for the class will be a grant-proposal or fundraising plan for that organization. The class will work together to produce an online resource on “Best Practices in Fundraising” which will contain case studies of fundraising projects in the San Antonio area.
Course materials will be made available online as Open Educational Resources.
I will blog about this course as I assemble the materials. Watch this space for further information.
If you represent a San Antonio nonprofit organization and are interested in working with a student intern from the class, please contact me.
