Nancy Bell Evans Center

The aim of the Nancy Bell Evans Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy is to enhance the understanding and vitality of the nonprofit and philanthropic sector through research, education, and community engagement.

We achieve this by providing:

  • Research on nonprofits, philanthropy, and non-governmental organizations.
  • Community outreach and events connecting members of the academic, nonprofit, and philanthropic communities.
  • Resources for easier access to information about nonprofits and philanthropy.
