GRAND RAPIDS (WWJ) — Grand Valley State University’s Johnson Center for Philanthropy is relaunching LearnPhilanthropy.net, an online portal that will serve as a clearinghouse of philanthropic knowledge, skill development, and research for foundations and those who work with philanthropy.
The project, formerly operated by the Council on Foundations, has been on hiatus for the past year.READ MORE: Here's A List Of Warming Centers Open Across The City Of Detroit

The LearnPhilanthropy.net site is a forum for sharing knowledge about the practice of philanthropy. In addition to the site, the LearnPhilanthropy initiative will seek to build new knowledge through research and supporting online networks to foster knowledge sharing.
Unlike other sites, LearnPhilanthropy is “by the field, for the field.” It will be guided by a national advisory board of expert leaders and practitioners in philanthropy.
Hosting LearnPhilanthropy.net at Grand Valley will help introduce the site to field academics, researchers, and students across the nation through the university’s leading role with the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, a national membership organization of 47 university-based centers supporting the work of philanthropy and nonprofits throughout the country.
