The Valdry Center for Philanthropy
The Valdry Center for Philanthropy is an academically based research center focused on philanthropic studies and nonprofit management. With no such academic unit at a HBCU, the Valdry Center brings new dimensions to the potential of philanthropic studies and nonprofit management in higher education and for people of color. The Valdry Center is guided by focusing on its seven strands of work: degree programs, social entrepreneurship fellows, faith-based programming, customized nonprofit capacity building, seminar and certificate programs, educational initiatives, and research. The Valdry Center will address issues that have historically been left undiscussed in minority communities around the world.
