Would you like to read a dozen reports on fundraising trends? Of course not. Instead, you can download an advance copy of CCS Fundraising’s “Snapshot of Today’s Philanthropic Landscape,” which summaries the latest data from a bunch of sources in a clear, easy-to-read format — with lots of charts and graphics.
Giving in America in 2012 reached $316.23 billion — a 3.5 percent increase from 2011. The CCS report, scheduled to be released later this month, provides an comprehensive overview of philanthropic trends in America, with details about the largest donors, corporate and foundation giving, bequests, online and social media giving, millennial donors, and an analysis of the top 400 charities. It’s not just a collection of data — CCS does a great job identifying trends and analyzing their significance for nonprofits.
In addition to its own research, based on interviews with more than 6,200 major donors and nonprofit leaders, CCS highlights the latest findings from sources like the Giving USA Foundation, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the Bank of America Study of High Net Worth Philanthropy, the Foundation Center, the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study, and more.
