The Growing Philanthropy in the U.S. report is based on extensive nationwide research and the Growing Philanthropy Summit, which brought together 30 influential leaders from the nonprofit industry for discussions in Washington, D.C. last June. It provides recommendation on how non profits can increase charitable giving during these challenging economic times.
Demand for services have increased significantly at many charities and yet charitable giving has remained stuck at 2% of disposable income for the past 40 years according to authors of the report. The Growing Philanthropy in the U.S. full report can be accessed at https://www.blackbaud.com/
