John Hanc Publishes Stories
John Hanc, associate professor, communication arts, NYIT-OW, recently published two stories in the Giving section of of the New York Times
(dealing with trends in philanthropy, volunteerism, etc.). One is about the impact of the LGBT audience in fundraising
, and includes a powerful case study from the Girl Scouts. The other, about the magnificent but overlooked National World War I Memorial and Museum in Kansas City
, is a story of crowd funding, 1920s-style.
Hanc also published an inspiring Newsday cover story
about the first African American physician in the Long Island suburbs, whose son (afflicted with cerebral palsy) also became a physician.
