Hartsook Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University, United Kingdom
Based in Plymouth, United Kingdom, the Hartsook Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University is the only institution of its kind dedicated to growing philanthropy by enhancing the quality of the donor experience and developing new research in the field of philanthropic psychology. Hartsook President and CEO Matt Beem serves on the Centre's Board of Directors. By 2021, the Centre will be established as an international, academic Hartsook School of Sustainable Philanthropy. The Centre was founded by Adrian Sargeant, Director of the Centre and Professor of Fundraising at Plymouth University, and Jen Shang, a Philanthropic Psychologist and the Centre's Director of Research. The Centre's mission is to provide philanthropists and fundraisers with the robust and reliable research information they need to build sustainable philanthropy.

Hartsook Chair in Fundraising
Having endowed the only fundraising chair in the country - The Robert F. Hartsook Chair in Fundraising at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University - Bob Hartsook has created a one-of-a-kind opportunity for our firm's clients. With the Hartsook Institute for Applied Research, we are on the cutting edge of studying and distilling information compiled by the School and other prominent authorities. We constantly seek practical applications of that knowledge to move an organization's advancement activities forward for unprecedented results.

It has also created the Plymouth Charity Lab, an experimental facility conducting high quality research into fundraising and philanthropy, and the Rogare think tank, drawing together 60 senior figures from around the world to identify areas of fundraising, which would benefit from further research.
