Giving USA 2020

Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST*

There is no doubt that charitable giving is facing a lot of uncertainty right now, but where did giving stand at the outset of the current crisis, and what context and insight can that provide for the current environment? What happened to giving in 2019 in terms of how much various fields received and from what sources?

Please join us on June 18th for a discussion of the new results from Giving USA 2020. Dr. Patrick Rooney of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI and one of the researchers working on the annual report will be presenting the findings, along with Laura MacDonald, vice-chair of Giving USA Foundation and founder of Benefactor Group. This year, part of this session will be devoted to issues and trends not addressed in detail in the report as well – the loss of donor households in the middle to low income range, and current proposals for tax deductions for charitable giving. Please sign up early as this annual session is often oversubscribed and send ahead of time any questions you hope will be covered.

Among other things Participants will learn:

  • How much of what kinds of charitable dollars are going to various fields of practice (eg. Arts and culture, health, etc)
  • What major changes are going on with how charitable money flows to nonprofits
  • What all of this means for your development practices

*The recording of this webinar will be available on the NPQ website in 3-4 business days after the live event
