Focusing On Faith Trends In Giving USA 2018

Here in Charleston, South Carolina, school buses are already on the roads and summer crowds are heading home.  This is the time of year when coastal residents keep a close eye on the tropics and hope for a quiet hurricane season.  For fundraisers, you are soaking in the calm before a different type of storm—end-of-year planning!  Before you dive into your to-do list, I invite you to hear the latest faith-focused giving trends to prepare for the most important fundraising months of the year.

As a proud member organization of the Giving Institute, Blackbaud is excited to share details from the Giving USA 2018 report.  I had the honor to moderate a session on the report’s religious giving trends led by Rick Dunham, an expert in faith-focused fundraising and the Chair of the Board of the Giving USA Foundation.  The Giving USA 2018 study provides the most comprehensive data on giving to all charitable organizations by source, as well as key American giving trends.  

I hope you have the opportunity to watch the recording of our session.  You will see the latest religious giving results, learn what the trends reveal about the state of philanthropy and hear ideas on how you can grow your own fundraising performance.  Here’s to a successful start to your end-of-year season!
