The RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service prepares the next generation of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders through graduate education and research.

Our research addresses pressing issues in philanthropy, nonprofit management, social entrepreneurship, and global civil society. We train students through our university-wide graduate program in nonprofit studies and we engage the world of practice through executive education programs tailored to the needs of seasoned professionals in the field. As you explore the RGK Center, you will see that our collective work, ranging from our graduate courses offerings to our international exchange programs to our new books and publications, is all focused on helping the nonprofit leaders of today and tomorrow make informed and innovative contributions to the public good.

Celebrating 20 Years Deep in the Heart and Science of Philanthropy

It has been an energizing two decades of building relationships with our community and growing as a Center. As we reflect on the beginning of our Center 20 years ago, we are deeply thankful for those who made it possible, from our founding Director, Curtis W. Meadows Jr., to our Advisory Council members past and present, and to our generous funders. We celebrate you and thank you for your support.
