Giving may be on the upswing

Despite what some people viewed as a softening in charitable giving over the last couple of years, philanthropy now appears to be on the upswing and is expected to rise by 4.2%. This is good context for your work with donors, especially as donors strive to engage their children and grandchildren in the family’s philanthropic endeavors, paying particular attention to the changing preferences and giving styles of younger generations.   

At the community foundation, we are always here to serve as a sounding board for ways you can build long-lasting relationships with all of your donors. Our goal is to help your organization ensure that its endowment and reserve funds are strong and growing to secure your charity’s mission in perpetuity. Please reach out anytime!
