wordle of giving type wordsGiving USA: The Annual Report on Philanthropy is the seminal publication reporting on the sources and uses of charitable giving in the United States. For 57 years, fundraisers, nonprofit leaders, donors and volunteers, scholars, and other individuals who work in or with the charitable sector have counted on Giving USA to provide the most comprehensive charitable giving data available.

This includes incorporating the most up-to-date data and methodological approaches available within the estimating procedures it uses year after year.

Its research, conducted by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy since 2000, estimates all giving to all charitable organizations across the United States. These national estimates do not show the changes any one organization or geographical region might observe—they calculate total giving by about 117 million households across America, approximately 12.4 million corporations that claim charitable deductions, an estimated 99,000 estates, and about 76,000 foundations. The donations go to about 1.1 million IRS-registered charities, plus a conservative estimate of 222,000 American religious organizations.

A new report provides a look at giving in 2012:

  • Donations are inching up slowly. It will take six more years to raise as much as was received in 2007.
  • Donations rose 1.5% in 2012.
  • Donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals totaled slightly more than $316 billion.
  • Donations by living individuals, three-quarters of all giving, rose by just 1.9%.
  • That is 11% less than living donors provided in 2007
