"LaTanya was one of the first individuals I considered when I wanted to offer my class a mix of theory and practice. She helped redefine philanthropy for many of the students. Due to her presentation, several students now consider themselves a philanthropist and are thinking of ways to make long-term impact through innovative and strategic giving."
