Higher Education Being Changed by the New Initiative in the University of Maryland

Bruce Levenson sold the Atlanta Hawks in 2014 and immediately moved into the world of nonprofits. He started an initiative in Maryland University with some seed money for the Do Good Institute. The Do Good Institute (brucelevenson.com) is an initiative that is intending to influence and expose university students to the world of nonprofits. This is something it plans to achieve through creating an environment that allows the students to participate in a charitable initiative in the real world by making real-time decisions on what projects to fund with the money they are given. This move is intended to bring a new crop of nonprofit leaders. The program is already seeing a lot of positive response.

Bruce Levenson and his wife decided to venture into the Do Good Institute after realizing that there are great nonprofit organizations out there that are headed by people of good will and intentions but more often than not, these organizations fail. Most of the reason behind such failure is the fact that the leadership lacks the necessary skills it requires to run a nonprofit organization effectively. For any business to be successful, nonprofit or profit making, there are crucial business skills that the people at the leadership need to have.

In a report by PR News, the idea of training and introducing young people to the culture of nonprofits occurred to Bruce and his wife, and they decided to approach Maryland University with it. The university agreed and the Levenson’s began with seed money of 75 million dollars to fund the project while the university chipped in 20 million dollars. The first class involved students being offer 10000 dollars and asked to choose a charity of their liking, making the program to become famous on campus instantly.

George Soros: A Charitable Billionaire

Did you know that George Soros has given away 45% of his net income in his lifetime? Yes, and most of his contributions have been provided in support of the political parties, the Democratic Party.

You may have noticed that from 2004 to 2016 George Soros was not in the political limelight. Yes, he was still supporting other organizations, but he had toned down on political support. He withdrew from contributing finances towards the election campaigns after he lost a substantial amount of money during the 2004 presidential election. During that time, George contributed approximately $27 million to defeat the Republican Presidential Candidate George Bush, who later emerged the winner.

George rose again to power in 2016 Presidential elections. Soros was supporting Hilary Clinton and, he contributed $25 million towards the election. Three reasons influenced Soros’s decision: He is a liberal and a strong Democrat supporter; he is a friend to Clinton, and most importantly the fear of seeing Trump win. On different occasions, Soros has said that Donald Trump was in support of ISIS.

George has also made significant contributions to different organizations that are linked to Clinton. In June 2016, Soros contributed $7 million in support of the PAC ‘Priorities USA Action. He also contributed $5 million towards the PAC ‘Immigrant Voters Win chaired by Hilary Clinton.

Besides the $25 million given in support of the Democrats, Soros also contributed $2 million in support of American Bridge. It is a PAC that is opposed to Trump and other Republicans.
