The “Closer Takes” section offers longer, more detailed pieces about ideas and issues relevant to the philanthropic and nonprofit sector. These articles, below, are meant to be thought-provoking, evidence-based and timely. Our goal is to bridge academic scholarship with professional practice and public policy by making research accessible to wider audiences. Some pieces are written by faculty associated with the MPNL program, some by other scholars and sector thought-leaders, and some by the exceptional MPNL students and alumni. We welcome your feedback:
