The Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropy has been launched at the Bush School of Government and Public Service.  Approved by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents, the Center will engage faculty and students from across campus to support learning, inform policy, guide sector leaders, and build the capacity of nonprofits, while strengthening the reputation of the University and the School.

William A. Brown, professor and director of the Nonprofit Management Program at the Bush School, said research to be conducted at the Center will expand the Bush School’s role in supporting the nonprofit and philanthropic sector in Texas and beyond.

“We anticipate enhanced learning opportunities for students and enriched engagement with the community,” said Brown.

The Center’s research will focus on a variety of topics related to the scope, structure, and management of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in Texas. One goal is to create a web portal that would make data and research easily accessible to both the academic and the nonprofit and philanthropic communities as well as publish research in academic journals on governance, strategic management, grant making, and philanthropy.

The Center also plans to partner with university programs and community entities to develop program initiatives, offer learning opportunities for underserved professionals in Texas through workshops, and develop training materials for nonprofit leaders both domestically and internationally. Bush School students will have opportunities to contribute to the research agenda as well as engage with partners on a range of nonprofit issues.
