About this grant

This grant provides renewal support to the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations & Voluntary Action, a leading U.S.-based national and international association that connects scholars, teachers, and practitioners interested in research on nonprofit organizations, voluntary action, philanthropy, and civil society. Founded in 1971, the grantee is a neutral, open forum that brings together both theoretical and applied interests, helps scholars gain insight into the daily concerns of nonprofits, and provides nonprofit professionals with connections to research they can use to improve their work. Principal activities include organizing an annual conference; publishing the leading scholarly journal in the field, the Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly; providing tools and media that enable the grantee to support research, discussion and teaching; initiating and supporting the Association for Research on Civil Society in Africa; and organizing the annual Symposium on Public Policy and Nonprofits.
