Starting in November of 2003, we will begin to add dissertations, working papers, web sites and other information sources to the database.

  • Philanthropy Research Guide

  • PRO: Philanthropy Resources Online

    PRO is a digital library of primary and secondary sources that supports teaching and learning about philanthropy and the nonprofit sector. Although providing access to the content of materials is our primary goal, the project also serves to preserve the ideas contained in rapidly deteriorating texts.

    The PRO collection is made up of images of the pages in the books, journals, and pamphlets. What you see is a scanned image of the actual pages of the original volume. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) has been performed on the images to enhance searching and accessing the texts. PRO is best viewed with a frames-capable browser.

    PRO has been made possible by generous financial support from the IUPUI Research Investment Fund, ARNOVA: The Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action, the Ford Foundation, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University.
