Essays on the Market for Professional Fundraising
This dissertation contributes to the economic literature on the market for professional fundraising with two theoretical and one empirical essays. The second chapter rationalizes the decision of charities to outsource fundraising. The third chapter shows theoretically how liquidity considerations affect the contractual choices and campaign results between charities and professional solicitors. The fourth chapter tests the empirical implications of the theory, using a unique dataset I collected from the North Carolina Secretary of State website.
