This pilot project of Indiana University's Center on Congress, led by former Rep. Lee Hamilton, will develop online educational materials and engage teachers and secondary school students in Indiana in exploring causes and solutions to the current dysfunction of Congress. Selected students will meet with members of the Indiana Congressional delegation to present their ideas. Indiana University's Center on Congress will partner with the Center for Civic Education, We The People, the Indiana Bar Association and others, with the aim of eventually replicating the program in other states.

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.
