The role of philanthropic activity in supporting social sustainability in rural Newfoundland

Research Projects

Description

This project will examine the role of philanthropic activity in supporting social sustainability in rural Newfoundland. A new health care social enterprise is being established in the town of Port aux Choix and the region of the Great Northern Peninsula. Through this project we will examine the potential of this social enterprise to spur philanthropic giving, create new partnerships with grant-making foundations, and identify new models for community-based service provision in rural areas.
