Slow Rise in Nonprofit Giving Continues
Blackbaud’s 2015 Charitable Giving Report revealed that charitable giving to nonprofits is slowly crawling back up to pre-Recession levels. Based on the 5,379 nonprofits in the Blackbaud sample, nonprofit giving last year increased by 1.6 percent. Among the top charitable recipients in 2015, international affairs organizations had the highest growth, while higher education institutions attained the biggest online giving increase for the second straight year. The overall rise also disproved predictions of a downturn for the nonprofit sector in 2015. Further analysis of the 2015 Charitable Giving Report is available on the Nonprofit Quarterly Web site.
