Blackbaud’s Charitable Giving Report


“Having an incentive there, sending that signal, will encourage more Americans hopefully to give even more to charitable organizations during these difficult times.”

“In the tax world, it’s pretty much been a partisan game over the past few years.”

“A lot of institutions are actually creating their own giving days.”
