Good Ventures awarded a grant of $10,000 to Associated Students of the University of California, Berkeley to support a Spring 2015 course for undergradutes on altruism. The course is part of the “DeCal” program at the University of California, Berkeley, in which courses are created and facilitated by students. Students taking the course will use the funds provided by this grant to make donations to charities of their choice.
