Study: Some Nonprofits Spent More on Fundraising During Recession
When the economy gets tough, arts, culture and humanities nonprofits increase spending on fundraising, according to new research from The University of Texas at Dallas.
The study, published online in Voluntas: International Journal of Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations, is one of the first to examine how fundraising priorities changed before, during and after the recession that began in 2007.

Dr. Young-Joo Lee, associate professor of public and nonprofit management in the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, co-authored the study with Jongmin Shon of Rutgers University.
