Release of the Giving USA 2014 Annual Report June 26th event

Charitable giving as a form of civic engagement in the United States attracts greater participation than many other types of civic involvement—even voting. For more than fifty years, the annual publication Giving USA has documented who gives what to whom. But 2013 was no ordinary year. How did charitable giving fare as the economy struggled to recover? What shifts took place in giving by individuals, corporations, and foundations? More importantly, what do the results tell us about who we are, where philanthropy is going, and what fundraisers can expect of 2014?

On June 26th Hudson Institute’s Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal and Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy joined forces to host Indiana University’s Patrick M. Rooney, Ph.D., a member of the team that researches and writes Giving USA, to discuss the questions raised by the latest numbers. Joining Dr. Rooney on the panel was the Nonprofit Quarterly‘s Ruth McCambridge, Tom Pollak of the Urban Institute’s National Center for Charitable Statistics, and Wendy McGrady from The Curtis Group. Stacy Palmer of The Chronicle of Philanthropy moderated the discussion.
