Early CWP Research Online


The Center on Wealth and Philanthropy and the Boston College Libraries have made the Center’s early research available digitally for the first time. CWP is a multidisciplinary research center specializing in the study of spirituality, wealth, philanthropy, and other aspects of cultural life in an age of affluence.

The research dates from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. In its early days the Center was called the Social Welfare Regional Research Institute. The documents report the Center’s research findings on subjects such as public assistance, employment and childcare. Full text of the reports is available as a collection in eScholarship@BC. This research is now accessible online to anyone in the world.
