About this grant

This grant provides partial support for the Center on Philanthropy Panel Study, an ongoing research study that collects detailed data on the giving and volunteering habits of several thousand American households over time and over generations. It is conducted in conjunction with the Institute for Social Research’s Panel Study of Income Dynamics at the University of Michigan, which has surveyed families since 1968 and to which a philanthropy component was added in 2001. The dataset produced by the study is the best, most accurate resource for measuring giving and volunteering in the United States and is used extensively by researchers. Founded in 1987, the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University is a leading academic center dedicated to increasing the understanding of philanthropy and improving its practice through research, teaching, public service, and public affairs.
