Start a Think Tank for Millennial Philanthropists at UCLA

This petition had 72 supporters

Proposed: An organisation that will promote philanthropy amongst millennials, ideally functioning as a “think tank” that utilises the diversity of its members to solve problems at UCLA and in Los Angeles

My goal is to create a member body of students and possibly alumni that function with the purpose of utilising their collective interests, experiences, and abilities to find and solve problems within the UCLA community and ideally in Los Angeles. The advantage of having members that are students is that there will be new students, every quarter, from all over the world bringing in new ideas based on their unique experiences.

The benefits of this kind of collaboration are twofold, firstly, members have the opportunity to discover their interest in philanthropy – primarily through the donation of their time and dedication – and get in touch with the community around them. Secondly, it will provide members with the chance to network with other students, and through the diversity of the member body learn different approaches to problems. My hope with this organisation is that it will increase diversity in philanthropy whilst allowing millennials to actively engage in the problems of today to make their tomorrow better. Additionally, I want to promote the ideology that diversity is a strength to be encouraged and celebrated, and that only by utilising our differences will we find a different outlook and consequent solution to our problems.
