Collection of Baseline Data from Congregations

Project Number: 
Start Date: 
Mon, 01/01/1996

This grant is part of a larger project to collect baseline data on 1,350 institutions, including 350 congregations. During the last decade the Independent Sector has worked on measuring the size, scope, and activities of the independent or nonprofit sector and has developed a series of biennial national surveys on giving and volunteering. This grant enables Hodgkinson to analyze the output of this sector and its impact on the larger society and to track changes over time in finances, sources of support, services, and needs. Independent Sector will publish an initial report on this work in early 1998. (SM)
