Nonprofits and philanthropy
With the private sector increasingly investing in local communities, with more businesses “doing well by doing good,” and with nonprofits modernizing how they measure their impact, philanthropy in America is transforming. Urban examines today’s evolving giving practices, explores nonprofit sector trends, and analyzes the effectiveness of grantmaking centered on race and equity. Leaders on the front lines of change look to Urban for data- and evidence-based insights to strengthen their efforts to address today’s complex, interconnected social problems.
