Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership (MPNL) Resources
Welcome! The study of philanthropy is a young field, and consequently not a great deal has been written about it in the scholarly literature. However, GVSU has an extensive collection of philanthropy materials. The literature of the nonprofit sector also contributes to the philanthropy knowledge base.
The Steelcase Library reading room houses a large collection of reference titles, classics, and new publications in the field of philanthropy. Still, most books pertaining to philanthropy are in the Steelcase Library's automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS). When you find an item you want that is in the ASRS, follow the on-screen directions to retrieve it. Learn more about the MPNL program here.
