Philanthropy Lecture Series: Avoiding Overhead Aversion in Charity

Partner: $15.00 / General: $25.00

Join us for a lunch-time lecture by Uri Gneezy, the Epstein/Atkinson Endowed Chair in Behavioral Economics at UC San Diego. 

Imagine you have just secured funds from a generous private donor to help launch a new fundraising campaign. How can you use this initial donation to maximize contributions from other potential donors? In this study, Uri and his research partners test whether designating early large gifts to cover overhead costs increases donors’ willingness to contribute to an organization. Join us to learn more about what research tells us about fundraising strategies, specifically around overhead - and the implications for the nonprofit sector. 

The 2019 Philanthropy Lecture Series is co-hosted by The UAA Department of Economics, Rasmuson Foundation, and The Foraker Group.
