Individual Charitable Giving way up in 2010

Giving USA’s 2010 report is out, and it says giving is up!

Here’s some good news: According to the newly released Giving USA 2011, giving was up 2% (adjusted for inflation) in 2010 after two years of record decline, totaling $290B last year in the US. Individual giving (73% of total giving) and bequests were way up, while foundation giving was flat.

Corporate giving was up a surprising 9 percent (adjusted for inflation), fueled in part by in-kind corporate pharmaceutical donations.
