Do Good Better: The Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance

The Melvin J. Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance (Ballard Center) teaches students what it means to “Do Good Better.” Since everyone will contribute to philanthropy in some form over their lifetime, the Ballard Center provides students the tools necessary to ensure they make the largest impact possible in those endeavors. The interactive Do Good Better exhibition illustrates the Center’s approach to impact education by reviewing concepts such as:

-          The importance of organizations that promote self-reliance;

-          How to recognize high-impact organizations;

-          How Melvin J. Ballard, our center’s namesake, was an example of Doing Good Better; and

-          More!

The grand opening will take place, February 12, 2014, from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm.  A short presentation on the Ballard Center will be offered at 4:30 pm and at 6:00 pm.  Refreshments will be served.
