Charity in 2019: A Snapshot

  • According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S.

  • Americans gave $410.02 billion to charity in 2017, crossing the $400-billion mark for the first time.

  • Donors and funders are becoming ever more sophisticated in their approaches to making gifts as they draw on the increasing availability of new data, new technology, and new ideas,” said Rachel Hutchisson, chair of The Giving Institute and vice president of corporate citizenship and philanthropy for Blackbaud.

  • The role of charity in our society: “The greatest gift to our community would be when we contribute to making lives better; when we touch lives by the dint of donations or charity, spreading light to the most needy, and enlighten our souls in the process.”
