    Taking a class in how to give to charity is sort of like taking a class on how to buy an automobile, sponsored and taught by an auto manufacturing corporation.

    I think the sponsors might have ulterior motives.

    My other concern would be the current philosophy of distrust for the experts and the push for self reliance.

    I did skim read the article so please forgive me if I missed something but..... why did the article include the overwhelming amount of debt this young person have? How does it relate to the article? I find it a horrific amount for a psychology degree and so sad that she doesn't understand the concept of how to spend her own money wisely yet she is tasked with allotting 100k to someone else????? The last quote of the article says it all "You have to be careful to make sure you are really giving money to what you think you are giving money to," she said. Yes, you should.
