The Blackbaud Index reported that overall charitable giving to nonprofits decreased 2.8 percent while online giving increased 9.7 percent for the three months ending December 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.
The Blackbaud Index provides the most up-to-date information on charitable giving today. Tracking approximately $22 billion in U.S.-based charitable giving, the index is updated on the first of each month and is based on a three-month moving average of year-over-year percent change.
Featuring overall and online giving, the index can be viewed by size and subsets of the nonprofit industry via an interactive online chart. The index also features a fundraising benchmark calculator that allows users to easily chart their results against the index and historical data to provide a fuller view of charitable giving.
