Every year, GivingUSA Foundation and the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University work together to research charitable giving in the United States.
The GivingUSA 2010 findings were released early this week.
Why is GivingUSA’s annual report useful to you? This research informs your development work. Consider this, from the GivingUSA website:
The only source of data about charitable giving that estimates how much was given by four different types of donors – individuals, foundations, estates (bequests) and corporations – Giving USA also reports on estimated contributions for 10 different types of charities. These donations reflect the priorities and values of Americans who support non-profits.
