How Independent is the Third Sector? The Complex Dependence of Nonprofits on the Government and Business Sectors. Frontline w

The status of nonprofits as organizations independent from the government and business sectors will be discussed on the basis of the results of two research projects of international scope: the first, on the key determinant of success of national fundraising campaigns developed by Spanish nonprofits for charitable causes, including international emergency aid; and the second, on the complex interdependencies between charitable foundations, entrepreneurial families and business (groups) internationally. http://hausercenter.harvard.edu/?p=1790 Marta Rey-Garcia is Associate Professor of Marketing at the Universidad de A Coruña, Spain. She teaches courses in master’s and undergraduate management programs. Her research interests lie with civil society organizations’ governance and management, with a particular focus on assessment of social and economic impact of nonprofit organizations, corporate social responsibility, and the philanthropic activity of entrepreneurial families and firms. She currently participates in publicly funded research projects on those issues and is the director of the Inditex Chair on Corporate Social Responsibility. She also belongs to the advisory board of the Compromiso y Transparencia Foundation, promoting transparency and social innovation in Spain and Latin America and to the board of the European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP). She holds degrees from the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (PhD) and Columbia University in New York (MBA).
