Nonprofit Innovation in a Time of Economic Change

Institute for Urban Policy Research   (Dallas)

November 2018

The Institute has worked closely with Capital One since its foundation as the J. McDonald Williams Institute. Their generous support funded our first look at place-based philanthropy. We assisted them further in recent years through an in depth analysis of their place-based strategies in New Orleans and Houston. Our latest collaboration involves a white paper that explores innovation in the non-profit community in the wake of the recession of the late 2000s. Focusing on North Texas, this report details the adaptive strategies that local non-profits employed to increase efficiency and effectiveness and reduce costs.
