Charitable Entrepreneurship

As a CFO for a non-profit in my full-time day job, and President of a smaller non-profit in my spare time, I am a student of capital campaigns and charitable giving.  John List of The University of Chicago is a leader in studying donor giving to charities.  Read, comment, and build your organization!

Charitable giving is an increasingly important component of our national economy comprising over 2% of GDP in 2008. However, relatively little is known about what drives people to give to charities. This line of research includes large scale field experiments to investigate charitable giving.
