The Effects of Government Funding on Management Practices in Faith-based Organizations: Propositions for Future Research
Author: KEVIN P. KEARNS
Published in PAM, Vol. 8 No. 3
The Bush Administration has taken steps to help religiously oriented
organizations compete for federal grants and contracts to delivery social services to their
communities. A composite case study is used as a literary device to illustrate propositions
about the possible effects that increased federal funding will have on the management
structure, practices, and culture of a small faith-based organization. The paper
speculates that the President’s so-called “faith-based initiative” could have some
unintended negative consequences for the organizations it is designed to help.
