Arnova's Mission

We are a leading interdisciplinary community of people dedicated to fostering through research and education, the creation, application, and dissemination of knowledge on nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, civil society and voluntary action.

By promoting excellence in scholarship and teaching, disseminating the latest research, and creating forums for dialogue that engage practice leaders and researchers and teachers, we serve the wider voluntary and nonprofit sectors and the communities they serve.

The gifts of members and others enable us to continue our work of building this field of knowledge and practice; supporting a next generation of leaders for scholarship, voluntary action and nonprofit services; and strengthening the nonprofit sector.

We welcome gifts to:

  • ARNOVA's Annual Fund
  • Diversity Scholarship Fund
  • Emerging Scholars Fund
  • Rudney Dissertation Award (An Endowment Fund)
