The Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving

Economic conditions, natural disasters, and market fluctuations have made it extremely difficult for nonprofits to make fundraising decisions informed by the latest donor behavior. That is why we created The Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving — to provide fundraisers with up-to-date data on fundraising trends and to couple that information with valuable analysis by leaders in the sector.

The Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving

The Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving is a broad-based fundraising index that reports total giving trends of 3,039 nonprofit organizations representing $7.9 billion in yearly giving on a monthly basis, both offline and online. The Index is based on actual giving statistics from nonprofit organizations of all sizes representing arts, culture, and humanities; education; environment and animals; healthcare; human services; international affairs; public and society benefit; and religion sectors. Read more about the methodology.

The Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving reports that overall giving increased by 1.7 percent for the 3 months ending November 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011.
