Professor Eikenberry’s main research interests focus on the role of philanthropy, nonprofit organizations, and civil society in democratic governance. In particular, she has conducted extensive research on giving circles, a funding mechanism to emerge from the “New Philanthropy” environment in the U.S. and elsewhere, where individuals pool their resources and decide together where to give these away. Her book on giving circles was published in 2009 by Indiana University Press.
