Houston, TX– A row of born-again shotgun houses is the unlikely home of cutting-edge art and visionary thinking about inner-city renewal. Third Ward TX introduces artists and neighbors of Project Row Houses who are breathing new life into their historically black community. Success attracts new real estate speculation as Project Row Houses races to create its own development plans that honor the history and culture of Houston’s Third Ward and strengthen community ties.

“…The nation’s most impressive public art project is also a bold experiment in how to build communities.” – Michael Kimmelman, The New York Times

A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides — as they have in the past — that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

A Place at the Table forcefully make the case that hunger has serious economic, social and cultural implications for the nation.” – Julie Makinen, LA Times

Spring 2019 Colloquium: Motivating Donors for Marginalized Causes

Motivating Donors for Marginalized Causes:  How Do Fundraisers Do That?

  • Ruth Hansen, Assistant Professor, Management, UW-Whitewater

It’s no secret that the charities that serve some of the most vulnerable members of society are often themselves financially vulnerable. Government funding is a staple for human services organizations, but charitable gifts are another important source of revenue.  How is fundraising different for organizations serving marginalized populations?

This workshop draws on a mixed methods study of fundraising practice to break down the objectives of fundraising acquisition appeals and examine how fundraisers work with issues of social acceptability when writing for client groups.  It addresses the thought processes behind those choices, and the importance of being intentional in fundraising communications.
