The Nonprofit Fundraising Survey reports on the fundraising results of more than 2,500 nonprofit organizations in 2010. Overall, 35 percent of charities reported an increase in private contributions for the first nine months of 2010 compared to the same period in 2009. Thirty-seven percent reported a decline. The major factors cited for the decline included fewer individuals giving, and smaller amounts for the typical gift. The survey represents a unique collaboration by the Urban Institute's National Center for Charitable Statistics with GuideStar, Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy, the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the Foundation Center, and Blackbaud.
