ItemThe Changing Landscape of U.S. Cross Border Philanthropy-Research Brief(2019-05)The Changing Landscape of U.S. Cross-Border Philanthropy report provides an overview of academic literature on U.S. cross-border philanthropy and international partnerships, an analysis of existing data on U.S. international giving, and an analysis of data on the United States Agency for International Development’s Office of American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (USAID/ASHA) applicants and grantees. ItemCrowding-out or crowding-in: The dynamics of different revenue streams(Taylor & Francis, 2020) de Wit, Arjen; Bekkers, René; Wiepking, Pamala; Lilly Family School of PhilanthropyAn important question in public economics is to what extent changes in government funding lead to changes in private donations. In this chapter we identify and summarize four theoretical perspectives answering this question: the micro-economic, institutional-political, institutional signaling, and organizational perspective. Reviewing the empirical support for each perspective, we find that none of the perspectives sufficiently explains the dispersed empirical evidence for the relationship between government financial support and individual philanthropic donations. We argue that the context in which nonprofit organizations operate is a relevant but often overlooked factor that influences how government support affects philanthropic giving. Research in this area should adopt a dynamic perspective, taking into account the dynamics of different nonprofit revenue streams (from governments, businesses, foundations, households) as well as contextual level factors like the subsector of the nonprofit sector and country characteristics. ItemGender Differences in #GivingTuesday Participation(2017-12-12) Osili, Una; Mesch, Debra; Preston, Linh; Okten, Cagla; Bergdoll, Jonathan; Ackerman, Jacqueline; Pactor, AndreaUnderstanding the role gender plays in philanthropy empowers organizations to engage their donors most effectively and increase their giving. This is true throughout the year and particularly on #GivingTuesday, a day designated to maximize philanthropic giving. Since it began in 2012, #GivingTuesday has grown significantly in participation numbers and total dollars donated. #GivingTuesday, celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, provides a unique opportunity for nonprofit organizations to incorporate nontraditional fundraising methods into their efforts and to engage with donors online. For nonprofit leaders and fundraisers, a successful #GivingTuesday requires understanding how and where donors tend to give. ItemStates of COVID-19: Synthesis of State-level Nonprofit Reports on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic(2021-05-05) Stewart, Amanda J.; Kuenzi, Kerry; Walk, Marlene; Klippel, Abby ItemThe Giving Environment: Giving Trends By Race and Ethnicity(Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, 2023-11) School of Philanthropy, Indiana University Lilly FamilyThis is one of the two reports in the second phase of the Everyday Donors of Color report series, published in November 2023. It expands previous research by the school on declining donors and explores how factors such as wealth, income, and trust may be associated with giving patterns and trends within communities of color by analyzing the Philanthropy Panel Study (PPS), a longitudinal panel study that surveys households biannually on giving behaviors, and the General Social Survey (GSS), a cross-sectional survey which provides explanatory insights about trust and people’s general social behaviors and opinions. This report’s findings shed light on philanthropy across diverse communities and prove timely due to the uncertainties caused by economic shocks and the rise of social movements advocating for equity.

The 2016 United States Presidential Election occurred amidst divisive public opinions and political uncertainties for immigrants and immigration policies were a frequently-contested debate focus. Thus, this election provided an opportunity to examine nonprofit organizations' social media usage during political conflicts. We analyzed social media posts by immigrant-focused nonprofit organizations and conducted interviews probing into how they managed their online presence and social relations. This study finds that these nonprofit organizations adopted three key strategies to support their target community: 1) disseminating content about immigration-related issues and policies; 2) calling for participation in collective endeavors to influence the political climate; 3) engaging in conversations with outside stakeholders including political actors, media, and other organizations. We use empowerment theory, which has been used widely to study marginalized populations, as a theoretical lens to discuss how NPOs' social media usage on Twitter reflects their endeavors to bring information and calls to action to immigrant communities. We, then, present design opportunities to amplify the advantages of social media to help nonprofit organizations better serve their communities in times of political upheavals.
