About this grant

This grant provides renewal support to the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations & Voluntary Action. The association is a membership association of more than 1,300 nonprofit scholars and practitioners which provides a neutral, open forum committed to strengthening the research community in the emerging field of nonprofit and philanthropic studies. The association brings together both theoretical and applied interests, helping scholars gain insight into the day-to-day concerns of third-sector organizations, while providing nonprofit professionals with research they can use to improve the quality of life for citizens and communities. Principal activities have included an annual conference, publications including the "Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly", electronic discussions, and special interest groups. The association’s three main strategic goals in the near term are to: 1) diversify membership and participation in events; 2) strengthen and enrich the dialogue between researchers and practitioners; and 3) build partnerships with other nonprofit infrastructure organizations.
