Grants to this Grantee
for research on public perceptions of philanthropy by the Lilly School
Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy increases the understanding of philanthropy and improves the practice worldwide through critical inquiry, interdisciplinary research, teaching, training, and civic engagement. The school offers degrees in philanthropic studies and does research in the field of philanthropy. One project is Giving USA, a long-running, comprehensive analysis of the sources and uses of U.S. charitable giving. Recently, the school has also developed a research dissemination strategy to help academic research better reach donors and foundation staff so that it can inform their work. This grant will support a research project on Americans’ attitudes and perceptions on institutional philanthropy.
