About this grant
This grant provides support to Tufts University for a Professorship in Public Service at the Lincoln Filene Center for Citizenship and Public Affairs. Since its inception, the chair has been filled by Brian O’Connell, one of the founders of both the Independent Sector and CIVICUS. This grant increase will be used to disseminate a book recently completed by O’Connell, "Fifty Years in Public Causes: Stories From a Road Less Traveled."
