A retired California-based corporate attorney turned philanthropist, artist, and change maker Maggie Kaplan has partnered with Presidio Graduate School to create the Invoking the Pause (ITP) Scholarship Fund. The ITP Scholarship will provide financial support to incoming MBA, MPA and Dual MBA/MPA sustainable management students starting with the Spring 2013 cohort. This support was provided by the MK Gratitude Fund of RSF Social Finance.
Maggie Kaplan is the Founder and Executive Director of Invoking the Pause, an environmental small grants program designed to advance public awareness and engagement about climate change issues. By creating the ITP Scholarship Fund at Presidio, Kaplan has woven together two causes of utmost importance to her: the sustainability of the planet and the education of the social change agents of the next generation.
“By supporting student scholarships at Presidio Graduate School, two of my passionate philanthropic interests dovetail in this one program and its ‘hands-on’ educational approach,” said Kaplan. “For me, that’s a wonderful ‘two-fer’: both an ‘ROI’, a return on my investment, as well as an ‘ROR’, a ‘return on relationships’ I’ve been cultivating with Presidio!”
All incoming degree-seeking students will be considered for the ITP Scholarship. For additional information, please contact Bethany Baugh, Director of Admissions.
