About North Carolina Nonprofit Scholars
North Carolina Nonprofit Scholars are interested in how giving and volunteering are changing across communities. We conduct research on how philanthropy is changing over time and place with particular attention to philanthropy in relation to retirement, military service, schools, workplaces, and immigration. Our findings have implications for those seeking philanthropic dollars and volunteers for nonprofit organizations as well as policymakers looking at how to encourage strong communities. Our primary focus is on North Carolina and differences among long time residents and those who have relocated to the state.
On April 23-24, 2011, the North Carolina Nonprofit Scholars gathered to engage in a day of dialogue about community building and advancing nonprofit research in our region, producing an outline of Big Questions for Nonprofits Studies to guide future nonprofit research efforts.
