Class has a global focus:

  • “Global Giving” theme that supports human rights, international development, and humanitarian assistance activities.
  • Class has to give to Seattle based orgs implementing projects around the globe.

Class works with group called Global Washington

  • Network of NGOs, businesses, foundations, academics, etc
  • Mission is to support the global development community in Washington
  • Class takes 22 issue areas from Global Washington and narrows it down to 5 to focus on, then creates their own small groups
  • Class solicits proposals from and ultimately awards funding to orgs that are a part of Global Washington

Interesting Grant Making Process:

  • Students pick 5 issue areas
  • Each group researches their issue area and GW orgs
  • Each group solicits proposals from GW orgs
  • GW orgs COME TO CLASS and present projects to students – takes ups 4 classes (instead of site visit)
  • Students evaluate projects
  • Each group presents to class to give their recommendations for which GW orgs to fund
  • Class makes final allocations during “Decision Day”

Students in each group have a specific role:

  • Team manager
  • Writing leader
  • Presentation leader
  • Scheduler
  • Note taker

Guest Speaker

  • Natalia Lozano, Director, CAMY
  • Diana Campos Ortiz, Research Project Manager, CAMY
