The Kalamazoo Promise: A Study of Philanthropy's Increasing Role in the American Economy and Education
Strickland, Shelley
International Journal of Educational Advancement, v9 n1 p16-34 Jul 2009
This paper explores the Kalamazoo Promise through the lens of the existing literature on other privately funded scholarships programs and the broader advancement knowledge base. The author concludes that current research does not adequately explain the Promise, and suggests a conceptual model--a logic model--to be used in philanthropy evaluation.
