For the first time since 2007, more than half of surveyed nonprofits saw growth in donations. Looking ahead for 2012, more than 70 percent of organizations anticipate increases in charitable giving. However, the economy remains a concern for organizations fundraising efforts. The Spring 2012 Nonprofit Fundraising Study also examines fundraising methods and board member giving. The survey represents a unique collaboration by the Urban Institute's National Center for Charitable Statistics with Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy, the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Giving USA Foundation, Blackbaud, Campbell Rinker, and Convio.
