Community Social Capital, Racial Diversity, and Philanthropic Resource Mobilization in the Time of a Pandemic

Community Social Capital, Racial Diversity, and Philanthropic Resource Mobilization in the Time... Abstract Using the county-level data of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic in the United States, we test the relationship between communities’ social capital and philanthropic resource mobilization during a pandemic and how this relationship is moderated by the racial diversity and the severity of the pandemic in the community. The analysis suggests that the collective monetary contributions to frontline nonprofits responding to pandemics are closely related to the level of social capital in the community. The results also reveal that the positive relationship between social capital and resource mobilization is reinforced in racially diverse communities and when communities are affected by pandemics more severely. Our findings suggest that building inclusive communities by embracing diverse racial groups and individuals will contribute to communities’ resilience to pandemics and other disasters. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png City & Community (Fixed 2) SAGE

Abstract

Abstract Using the county-level data of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic in the United States, we test the relationship between communities’ social capital and philanthropic resource mobilization during a pandemic and how this relationship is moderated by the racial diversity and the severity of the pandemic in the community. The analysis suggests that the collective monetary contributions to frontline nonprofits responding to pandemics are closely related to the level of social capital in the community. The results also reveal that the positive relationship between social capital and resource mobilization is reinforced in racially diverse communities and when communities are affected by pandemics more severely. Our findings suggest that building inclusive communities by embracing diverse racial groups and individuals will contribute to communities’ resilience to pandemics and other disasters.
