GuideStar survey of giving through May 2010

GuideStar surveyed almost 7,000 NPOs to find out what happened in giving for the first five months of 2010.  You can get their report for free, without registration. 

Key result is 30% of the respondents said their giving increased compared to prior year. Giving declined for 40% and is about the same for 28%.  (That leaves 2% as don’t know, which makes sense because a lot of the responders are people who work outside the finance area and may not have access to current info.)

Other helpful questions are what organizations have done to respond to the funding issues and changes in demand for services (no surprise that only 6% saw decline in demand.)

Get the report! Some good, current info on what other NPOs are experiencing. Broad-based current data is hard to find.
