A study on Realizing Rights by Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken and David Berlan was cited in The Chronicle of Philanthropy:

“Time-limited groups may be perceived as less threatening to partners because they aren’t seen as long-term competitors for funding,” says Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken, of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. With David Berlan, a colleague at the public-affairs school, she has been studying Realizing Rights as a model for time-limited organizations.
