In the 12 years since the first cowork space opened in the U.S., the phenomenon has become ubiquitous in cities around the country. It’s the go-to working arrangement for independent contractors, from bustling Manhattan to quiet Midwestern suburbs.
In early 2016, administrators at MIT Sloan’s Sustainability Initiative partnered with Haven Insights to enhance their approach to applicant recruitment and student engagement. After 10 years of existence, the Initiative’s alumni base had grown large enough to provide a robust sample for detailed survey data, whereby graduates were asked about their experience in the program and how they think the Initiative can improve.
Why do alumni give back, and what makes them want to give more? These were the questions asked by Grove City College, which partnered with Haven Insights in late 2016 to gain a deeper, more holistic perspective of their alumni donor base.
