RGK Center Director Receives the 2007 John Grenzebach Award

Peter Frumkin, Director of the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service, has won the 2007 John Grenzebach Award for Outstanding Research in Philanthropy for Education from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

He received the award in the Outstanding Published Scholarship category for his book Strategic Giving: The Art and Science of Philanthropy, which was published in 2006 by the University of Chicago Press.

The annual award is cosponsored by CASE and the Giving USA Foundation. It is named after one of the founders of John Grenzebach & Associates Inc., a development consultant firm catering to the education sector.

The 2006 award went to Andrea Walton for her book Women and Philanthropy in Education.

Frumkin will receive the award at CASE's annual assembly later this month.

Prior to coming to the LBJ School in 2005, Frumkin was an Associate Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, where he was affiliated with the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations. Frumkin has been a Senior Fellow of the New America Foundation, and has worked as a foundation program officer, a nonprofit manager, and program evaluator for both nonprofit and public agencies.
