Policymakers, civic leaders, and scholars have increasingly focused their attention over the last decade and a half on the importance of voluntary participation in civil society. What mobilizes giving and volunteering? What can policymakers and nonprofit managers do to change the current landscape in places with low levels of participation? These are the questions this edited collection addresses. Published in cooperation with Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University.
