Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Launches Perspectives in Philanthropy, Vol. 11, “Reimagining Education”

Nov 5, 2013

Showcases fifteen organizations that are changing the face of education

New York —

The Wealth Management group of Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) today announced its latest issue of Perspectives in Philanthropy, Vol. 11, “Reimagining Education,” a journal that explores how charitable giving is being redefined in effective and meaningful ways.

The organizations highlighted in this issue are unlocking the transformational power of learning and expanding worldwide access to quality education.  Innovators featured in this edition include Blue School, The Center for Discovery, The Cigar Family School, Community Foundation DeKalb County,, Khan Academy, Little Pim, Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), The Pew Charitable Trusts, Pikes Peak Community Foundation, Say Yes to Education, T1D Exchange, Tostan, Tuck’s R.U.S.H. for Literacy and The University of Maryland’s Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership.

According to Melanie Schnoll Begun, Managing Director and Head of Philanthropy Management at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management, “Education has the power to dramatically change communities.  For example, students who attend the Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) learn how to put knowledge into practice in their jobs and internships to solve real world problems.  The results have ranged from building an orphanage in Haiti to launching a bone marrow registry for people of color.”

“I am delighted that Morgan Stanley offered Say Yes the opportunity to be featured in Perspectives in Philanthropy,” said George Weiss, founder of Say Yes to Education.  “Say Yes is committed to providing holistic supports to low-income children and their families, enabling them to graduate from high school, accomplish post-secondary educational success and achieve meaningful life goals, including giving back to their communities.  Collaborating with an institution like Morgan Stanley and the fifty-four private colleges and universities standing with us to make a college education attainable and affordable, helps extend our reach and gives more students  the opportunity to reach their full potential.”

“Morgan Stanley is committed to helping our nonprofit clients grow their charitable programs,” said Steven Rosandich, Vice President at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management.  “One of the most exciting ways we are doing this is by highlighting their remarkable stories and achievements in Perspectives in Philanthropy.”
