All Revenue is Not Created Equal: Balancing Mission and Market Aims
I study how nonprofits get the resources they need to deliver their programs and services, and how this acquisition impacts what they do. I use a mixed methods approach, including both analysis of large datasets, experiments, interviews, and focus groups in my research. I draw on research across multiple disciplines including but not limited to: organizational behavior, psychology (e.g., donor motivations, framing theory), economics (e.g., competition), and nonprofit management. While I publish some of my research in the journals my colleagues would consider top for our discipline, I also publish in practitioner-oriented journals and outlets. The best example of improving everyday life comes from an email I recently received from a colleague who lives in the Netherlands. He wrote, "Through a Google Scholar alert I found your paper 'All earned revenue is not created equal: Revenue embeddedness as a framework for exploring crowding-in/crowding-out effects'. It is wonderful and could not have come at a better time. We are just finishing up a very similar analysis of entrepreneurship among cultural nonprofit organizations in the Netherlands. We are citing your paper in our final report for the ministry of Culture, Education & Science."
