Giving USA 2014

Giving figures and other research are critical for fundraising success, and Giving USA: The Annual Report on Philanthropy is the seminal publication reporting on the sources and uses of charitable giving in the United States.

You may be wondering, how do fundraisers use Giving USA anyway? Not only can you use it to train board members and track reports about similar types of charities, but you can even use it as a resource to respond to media inquiries and do your own nonprofit benchmarking.
