Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This research focuses on the choice that firms involved in philanthropy must do between directly donating to independent nonprofits and channeling their contributions through corporate foundations under their control. The conceptual debate on how these two alternative ways to organize corporate philanthropy allow the organizations involved to achieve better performance in terms of a set of different productivity indicators will be illustrated with an empirical research comparing the performance of corporate and independent foundations, based on a survey to a representative sample of 325 foundations. Linear regression models will be used to test the hypotheses.

Abstract: This paper explores the ways in which political foundings matter for democratic theory. In the first part, I engage with the "normative" and "decisionist" notions of founding offered by Habermas and Derrida, respectively. While for Habermas the act of foundation marks a "constitutional beginning", for Derrida it is a manifestation of "originary violence". I suggest that both approaches are unsatisfactory. Contra Habermas, I argue that democratic theory should not ignore the dark side of political foundings, such as historical injustices and the construction of hegemonic identities. Yet, contra Derrida, I do not take founding violence as an indication of a profound paradox inherent in the normative grounds of democracy. In the second part, I develop an alternative approach that unfolds the impact of founding on political culture. On this reading, political foundings produce persistent patterns of inclusion and exclusion, identity and difference, remembrance and forgetting, all of which are woven into the very fabric of the political community, lingering in its institutions, practices and self-understanding. My thesis is that the legacies of founding, for better or worse, have a strong influence on the course of democratic politics.

Abstract: While the organizational founding process is subject to various isomporhic pressures, significant variation is still found in the completion, ordering, and timing of founding events. In this paper we present an analysis of an original survey of recently founded religious nonprofits to better understand the role that the founder's demographics, previous experience, and skills have in shaping the founding process. We find that older founders tend to complete the founding process faster and complete founding steps in a more common order. More highly educated founders tend to complete a wider variety of potential founding steps, as do those founders with prior employment as a religious nonprofit executive and organizations engaged in a wider range of activities. Male founders tend to follow a more typical order of founding steps. In short, our findings show that founder characteristics and organizational characteristics shape the founding process, but these effects vary across different dimensions of the founding process.
