IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy will convene a workshop on new research on community foundations and community philanthropy.
The emergence of community foundations outside the United States
(including in China, Canada and Egypt), especially the adaptations made to the community foundation model as it moves to other countries
New trends and research topics on community foundations in the United States
The challenges of writing community foundation history, with panelists who have, in different ways, confronted the very real difficulties of writing about a complex sector and long history
Relations between community foundations and other institutions of community giving, such as United Ways
The course, offered on a special basis in spring 2016, is focused on the role of community foundations and community philanthropy in the United States and in comparative contexts. The course will be based on participation in a series of workshops and a research conference.
