Community Leadership & Service


Established in 1999, the Institute on Philanthropy and Voluntary Service (IPVS) educates students about the American traditions of philanthropy and individual responsibility in order to encourage the vibrant, private efforts that are the true American response to those in need. The Institute works to reinforce a sense of individual responsibility for one’s own future and cultivates an appreciation for the primacy of privately led philanthropy.
