The Corporate-Nonprofit Partnerships

This National Science Foundation-funded project, in collaboration with Amy Oā€™Connor (University of Minnesota), examines how people respond to information aboutĀ corporate-nonprofit partnerships. We have conducted three waves of experiments with aboutĀ 2500 people. The goal ofĀ these experiments is to determine what types of communication causes peopleĀ to change their attitudesĀ andĀ ideas aboutĀ nonprofits and corporations. In addition, weĀ examine if these ideas translate intoĀ behaviors, likeĀ donating, volunteering, engaging in corporate activism, and awardingĀ punitive damages.Ā  We are currently analyzing and writing about these experiments, so watch this page for future publications and presentations.
