A Decline in Charitable Giving
Giving USA reports that charitable giving to all kinds of non-profits was down 5.7 percent in 2008. No surprise given the state of the economy. Despite the drop, Americans still donated $307 billion. NPR has a nice article on the topic. Giving may be down from the year before, but Americans still appear to be donating a large sum of money. As I previously wrote, if you are considering a donation, you may want to use www.charitynavigator.org to evaluate the organization.
