This course examines policy issues at international, national, and local levels. It attempts to provide groundwork approaches to nonprofits, NGOs, and philanthropy. The emphasis is on how philanthropy, nonprofit, and NGO sectors operate, their niche alongside private and public sectors, revenue sources, impact on society, and converse effects of society and its institutions; the policy making process. We will explore the impact of reliance on government or overseas support for Third World NGOs; faith-based service provisions; accountability and transparency; advocacy; and government regulations.
