Non Profit Informatics and Education

This focus looks at some of the growing field of nonprofit informatics. While Electronic Advocacy is an important aspect of this area, E-Fundraising and technology adoption by the nonprofit sector are included. Special attention is paid to the ramifications of technology for education for nonprofit management. This is supportive to the other studies that are underway.

An exciting new part of my research looks at nonprofit informatics in the wake of the 2005 Hurricanes in the United States.  This research is being developed.
