My mission is to make philanthropy more meaningful for all actors involved, and to conduct and implement philanthropy research in such a way that it will enable the creation of generous societies. Generous societies are societies where people care about each other, and want to contribute to the public good, rather than take from it. I am very proud to be selected as the 2017 recipient of the UMD SPP Do Good Institute-ARNOVA Award for Global Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership, which will support my collaborative international research on philanthropy.

I aim to fulfill my mission among others through my work on philanthropy at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Since 2012, I have also been a board member of Nederland Filantropieland (former Dutch Fundraising Institute, IF). Through this role I aim to translate academic research on philanthropy to help philanthropy professionals do their important jobs even better. I feel honored to have received the 2016 Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Emerging Scholar Award for outstanding scholarship related to philanthropy and fundraising.

In my academic work, I study philanthropy and nonprofit organizations from a cross-national and interdisciplinary perspective. Together with other researchers I have published on philanthropic behavior in –among others- Social Forces, the European Sociological Review, Voluntas and the Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Quarterly and with Femida Handy I have co-edited The Palgrave Handbook on Global Philanthropy, describing and explaining philanthropic giving in 26 countries. The Palgrave Handbook of Global Philanthropy was awarded the 2016 Virginia Hodgkinson Research Book Award, for the best book on the nonprofit sector that informs policy and practice.

Awards and recognitions:

2017 UMD SPP Do Good Institute-ARNOVA Award for Global Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership.

2017 Best conference paper award for the paper A Different Driver? Exploring Employee Engagement in Corporate Philanthropy, at the European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP) Conference in Copenhagen, July 12 2017 (with Beth Breeze).

2016 Virginia A. Hodgkinson Research Book Prize for The Palgrave Handbook of Global Philanthropy by the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA).

2016 Academy of Management (AOM) Emerald Best International Symposium Award at the 2016 AOM Conference (with Femida Handy and Lonneke Roza).

2016 Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Emerging Scholar Award for research on philanthropy and fundraising.
