This brief summarizes findings from IRS Form 990 data and survey data collected by the Urban Institute and Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy. Analysis found that a surprisingly high percentage of nonprofit organizations (37%) with private contributions of $50,000 or higher reported no fundraising costs. The brief also discusses the staffing patterns of nonprofit organizations' fundraising efforts and the fundraising tactics that they employ.
