For the second consecutive year, Warren Buffett's sister, Doris, is offering a free online course on getting good value for the money you give away to charities.
Her Learning By Giving Foundation and Northwestern University are teaming up to present "Giving With Purpose: How to get the most out of your charitable giving" on EdX's MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) platform. EdX is a nonprofit initiative created by Harvard and MIT.
The class begins on Wednesday and lasts seven weeks. Registration is open to anyone over age 13. Students can expect to spend two to four hours a week if they participate in all the course activities.
