A workshop hosted by the
Experimental Economics Lab

University of Alaska Anchorage

August 15, 2012
noon to 5:00 PM

UAA Consortium Library, Room 307

Workshop Goals:

Alaska has, by far, the lowest rate of charitable giving of any state in the US. Donations from higher income households are less than half the national average.  With the national economic downturn, declining state oil revenues and tighter federal budgets, nonprofits will need to develop new sources of funding, particularly private donations.

Recent research in experimental economics sheds new light on fundraising and charitable giving which can provide valuable insights for Alaska’s nonprofits. The goal of this workshop is share the results of this exciting line of research with the nonprofit community.
