Winter 2015 Nonprofit Fundraising Study

March 2015


A wide range of charitable organizations in the United States and Canada saw increases in charitable receipts in 2014, according to the Winter 2015 Nonprofit Fundraising Survey (NFS). More than 1,550 organizations answered survey questions about charitable receipts from January through December 2014. Responding charitable groups included large and small organizations (by budget size), and organizations from every subsector from Arts, Culture & Humanities to Religion. Special to this year, the NFS included more specific questions about planned giving and questions regarding the structure of the organization.
