Event description

Description

In an increasingly unstable international social and political environment, the role of non-profit organisations intended to benefit ethnic communities has become much more critical, despite ongoing financial challenges due to funding cuts. Based on a case study of the Islamic Museum of Australia (IMA), we test the effect of inter-organisational collaboration with the aim of achieving social goals on private giving. Based on our survey results, we find that Muslims exhibit greater willingness-to-donate to the IMA than do non-Muslims, regardless of visitor status. Reflecting the crowding-out effect, those Muslims exposed to information on the inter-organisational collaboration exhibit lower willingness-to-donate than do other Muslims. We observe that Muslims allocated to the group receiving information on the current funding status of the IMA, in terms of not receiving regular funding from government, exhibit significantly higher willingness-to-donate than do other Muslims, confirming the potential scope for behavioural influences on fundraising.

Boram Lee, PhD, is a Lecturer in Accounting and Finance, University of Stirling, UK. Her principal research specialisation is in the field of economics and finance with an emphasis on behavioural studies based on psychological approaches. After her doctorate in behavioural finance which resulted in quality publications, such as one in the Journal of Banking and Finance, she has continued to develop her research interests into the areas of cultural valuation and public policy. She was one of the recipients of the 2014 UK Arts and Humanity Research Council Cultural Value Project Research Development Grant, and the project has resulted in several quality publications including one in the non-profit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly. Prior to her academic life, she managed international tours of highly respected theatre companies, worked as a producer at arts festivals, and participated in many visual art projects. Her professional involvement and life-long interest in theatre and the visual art sectors led her to her current active research interests in cultural and creative industries.
