About the 2009 I Live Here, I Give Here Study
The content of this survey was developed by staff at the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service at the University of Texas at Austin, led by Dr. Peter Frumkin and Dr. Sarah Jane Rehnborg with the assistance of research assistant Rachel Veron Douglas.  As such, this study is informed by more than 50 years of combined experience in the fields of philanthropy, volunteerism, and civil society.

This survey is part of a larger study designed to assess specific aspects of charitable giving in the Austin community, including how individuals make charitable decisions, how the I Live Here, I Give Here campaign has influenced these decisions, and how changes in giving culture have affected Austin nonprofits. Individual surveys are collectively tabulated, and a summary report will be presented to I Live Here, I Give Here.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
