We are looking for a sleek and sophisticated logo to help define an innovative collaboration called the Science of Philanthropy. SPI will be based out of the University of Chicago. SPI has several world-renown economists and psychologists (Dr. John List, Dr. Jean Decety and Dr. Anya Samak (see more info)) who will be conducting over 25 field and lab experiments to explore the motivations behind philanthropy. SPI will also be collaborating with philanthropic organizations and individuals to assist with the research and to apply the findings to their charitable work and endeavors. We will also be hosting a conference to share our findings and to foster partnerships between the fields academia and philanthropy.
We would like the logo to communicate:
a. Evidence-based research
b. Renowned social scientists
