Philanthropy Journal (PJ) today launches a new Snap Poll to learn about what motivates you to work. Whether you work for a nonprofit, for-profit or are self-employed, we seek your opinions about why you work for your current employer.

The survey is open to PJ subscribers, social media followers and others who make use of our content. Please complete the survey by 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 4. Results will be analyzed by NC State Professor Richard Clerkin and UNC-Charlotte Professor Joanne Carman shared in the June 17 edition of our weekly e-newsletter.
