Bruce Levenson’s Donation To A Major Philanthropy Center

Bruce and Karen Levenson have donated to The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland. In fact, their donations initially were the seed money for this organization, and they continue to donate as The Center continues to grow. Currently The Center has been successful enough to add a dormitory. The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland raises about ten thousand dollars a semester, according to a PR Newswire article that will be further summarized in this writing. That’s about $20,000 a year. This money is distributed among nonprofit agencies which are deemed worthy by the Levensons and the University of Maryland. It’s no wonder that prominent nonprofit agencies in D.C. regularly recruit from The Center. The Smithsonian and the Marriott Foundation are two of the most well-known ones. The Center is recognized by the nation’s capital as a leading authority in the education of students in philanthropy and nonprofit leadership. This was the aim of the Levensons, and they are exceptionally pleased at the outcome. According to Karen Levenson, the impact of this center has been the “most profound” of any philanthropic pursuit either Levenson of brucelevenson.com has been involved with. Bruce Levenson is well-known as the owner of a prominent NBA team, but this center of philanthropy his seed money began could change things. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html
