Abstract

In recent decades, neighborhood segregation by race has been on the rise, with many whites leaving areas with increasing minority populations. Eve E. Garrow investigates the effects of this so-called ‘white flight’ on nonprofit services. She finds that as whites leave neighborhoods, this can lead to a fall in the number of local nonprofits. She argues that this may be due to a reduction in an area’s political influence and stakeholder’s perceptions that the neighborhood has become more isolated and prone to neglect.
