A GREATER IMPACT
Philanthropy can significantly contribute to advancements in the social sciences, and greatly enhances ISR’s ability to invest in people, community, innovative research, and robust data infrastructure.
Here are some of the achievements made possible by donor support in the last year:
The Social Media Archive (SOMAR)
with support from Meta, is a revolutionary initiative and resource resource that democratizes social media data for researchers. This year, SOMAR received a historic deposit of rich data about social media’s impact on the 2020 US elections.
The Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics (CID)
is a leader in research, training, and data development concerning wealth inequality. Supported by the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation, the center’s strong commitment to mentorship and intellectual community has created a robust cohort of wealth inequality scholars.
The ISR Next Generation Initiative
propels early-career scholars forward in their research careers. In 2023, this donor-funded initiative supported 29 scholars with almost $300,000 in donor funding for research, salary support, and community building experiences.
