Professional portraits and practices in philanthropic management in Quebec

Research Projects


This project falls under PhiLab’s second research axis which seeks to understand and explain the relational processes that exist between the actors of the philanthropic sector. Our project targets a specific category of actors: that of professionals who work in philanthropic development and fundraising within nonprofit organizations and registered charities. Key professionals in supporting both the mission and programs of organizations, these philanthropic funding experts form a group that advocates for the recognition of their professional expertise in a context of low resources and of incomprehension of their needs.

This project aims at better understanding the professional practices and strategies of experts working in philanthropic development and fundraising in the nonprofit and charitable sector. More specifically, the project aims to discover the profiles of philanthropic management professionals.
