Welcome to Research Friday! As part of a continuing weekly series, each Friday we invite a nonprofit expert from our academic faculty to highlight a research report or study and discuss how it can inform and improve day-to-day nonprofit practice. We welcome your comments and feedback.
It was a great week for learning and connecting, with over 500 people attending the Phoenix Business Journal's Fourth Annual Nonprofit Business Summit, which engaged nonprofit and business leaders in dialogue and educational sessions. And on April 29-30, nonprofit scholars came together at the 8th Annual West Coast Nonprofit Data Conference to share current research and discuss methodological developments in the field.
In the spirit of learning, we've put together a fun quiz on Arizona's nonprofit sector. Take this quiz to test your knowledge. We'll report the overall scores in a future blog post.
