New Institute for effective philanthropy

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has announced the creation of The Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship, “designed to improve the impact, effectiveness and appeal of private contributions to the public good”. The Institute plans to inform and coordinate the efforts of activists, researchers, private citizens, foundations, corporations, public bodies and social entrepreneurs.

The Institute will achieve its purpose through four core activities: Learning, with a first class masters programme and a range of other certified courses; Research and development to provide insights and solutions to policy makers and practitioners; Community, through a global forum to convene the best thinkers and practitioners; Stewardship, as a leading curator of data and research from around the globe.
