How important is philan- thropy? Picture New York without the Memo- rial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center, the Metropolitan
Museum of art or the thousands of
other nonprofits essential to the city,
says Naomi Levine, co-founder and
executive director of the George h.
heyman, Jr. Center for Philanthropy
and Fundraising at New York University’s School of Continuing and
Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS).
“There is an
art to fundraising.”

Philanthropy and Fundraising
“the center is based on the concept
that philanthropy and raising funds is
no longer just about selling cookies for
the Girl Scouts,” says Levine. “there
is an art to fundraising.”
Whether it’s learning the art of fun-
draising at the heyman Center, under-
standing the politics of international
relations at the Center for Global
affairs, enrolling in a graduate degree
or certificate program, taking a single
class or attending a one-day seminar,
the options at NYU-SCPS accommo-
date the busiest of schedules.
