Students in the Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership program want to be leaders of change, and they aspire to make philanthropy better to make our world better. The MPNL program at Carleton is the first of its kind in Canada, and is housed within Canada’s oldest and largest School of Public Policy and Administration.

The driving force behind this fund is to send students to the International Society for Third-Sector Research (ISTR) conference, which will take place in Montreal in July 2020. This is a unique opportunity for students to present their research, and to showcase the MPNL program with a significant presence.

The Background

To grow the philanthropic sector, we rely on passionate changemakers who will take a leading role in wanting to make this world a better place. By participating at the International Society for Third-Sector Research (ISTR) conference, students will have the opportunity to tap into this mindset, network with other individuals in this field, and gain invaluable presentation skills.

The Rollout

The opportunity to attend or present at a conference can be a transformational experience for our students, and encourages students to produce quality material for the MPNL portal. However, many students cannot participate in these opportunities because of the cost. Your gift will make a transformational difference for selected students, helping offset expenses related to participating and contributing at these forums. The presence of our students at conferences also contributes to the visibility of the MPNL.

The Impact

The Master and Graduate Diploma of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership produces leaders, innovators and change-makers for philanthropy and civil society. The graduates will be capable of critical, audacious thinking, understand emerging trends and issues in the increasingly global world of philanthropy and nonprofits.
