Do you participate in an undergraduate or graduate student group which promotes and encourages philanthropy? Read on to find out how your efforts may get wider recognition through The Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy and the Generous U title.

Seeking to recognize those student groups and programs on US college campuses which encourage charitable giving, The Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy is once again accepting applications from those who increase awareness and involvement concerning the importance and impact of philanthropy and philanthropic values.

Student groups are invited to compete for the $10,000 Sillerman Prize as well as the Generous U title. There will also be one $2,500 Runner-Up prize awarded.

By completing the eligibility requirements as noted on GrantWatch.com, you will be able to share how your group has increased the practice and awareness of philanthropy or charitable giving from one’s own financial resources on your college campus.  By demonstrating success in engaging a substantial number of peers towards giving, increasing philanthropic awareness and a culture of giving on campus, nurturing a  lifelong habit of charitable giving and developing a model that can be adopted on other campuses,  you are well on your way to winning these generous prizes.

GrantWatch.com would like to take this opportunity to commend you on your exceptional community service in producing a future generation of philanthropists.  We wish you continued success in all of your endeavors.
