End-of-Year Surveys and Looking Forward to 2011

A couple of reports have come out lately summing up the giving trends of 2010 and making predictions for 2011:

-  Great charts in USA Today offer visualizations of some statistics in giving and volunteering

- Results from a new survey conducted by the Nonprofit Research Collaborative (which includes the Foundation Center) provide a detailed look (34 pages) at some of the trends in the philanthropic sector in the past year, particularly growth and decline in particular sectors. 

- Moving Beyond the Economic Crisis: Foundations Assess the Impact and Their Response explores the effect of the recession on grantmaking, and at only 3 pages is a concise and informative read. Foundation giving seems to have stabilized in 2010 and may experience moderate growth in 2011. 

Take a few minutes to educate yourself about some of these trends as you are starting to make plans for next year!
