About this Free Webinar
On June 16, Giving USA will release results from its research on charitable giving in the United States during the 2014 calendar year. Other similar reports on giving are pointing toward several shifts in how people are supporting nonprofits as the economy continues to recover and grow. Of particular interest to Northwest nonprofits is the steady rise in giving through community foundations and donor-advised funds. Join Aggie Sweeney, President & CEO of Collins Group, a division of Campbell & Company, as well as representatives from community foundations in the Northwest, for an insightful discussion of what these trends mean for philanthropy in our region and how local nonprofits can adapt  to and leverage these changes.

Key Takeaways
The panelists will discuss:

  • How much giving has increased in the past year and the expected direction for the year ahead (according to report data), and what it means for our Northwest region in particular
  • The dramatic shift in giving to and grants from donor-advised funds in recent years, with focused perspective by leading community foundation experts
