This course shall provide an historic overview of American
philanthropy (voluntary service, voluntary giving, and voluntary
organizations).  We shall consider the religious, ethical, and
political contexts of philanthropy, issues concerning ethnicity and
gender, debates over accountability and donor-recipient relationships
in philanthropic activities, and other questions.  There shall be a
seminar format with considerable discussion.  Reading shall involve
the classics in American philanthropy.  Finally, the course shall
have a service-learning component, with community volunteer work and
a journal linking issues in this volunteer experience to required
reading.
