What goes down must come up, right?
Okay, maybe that’s not the saying, but that’s what is happening with charitable giving trends right now. The Blackbaud Index just released the newest giving data through June 2015.
We’ve pulled together the stats to keep you in the loop:
- Overall charitable giving decreased 0.5% for the 3 months ending June 2015, compared to the same period a year earlier (based on data from 5,170 charities that raised more than $17 billion in the prior 12 months).
- Online giving grew a significant 13.8% in the same 3-month period, compared to the same period a year earlier (based on 3,786 charities that raised over $2 billion online in the prior 12 months).
