Growing Philanthropy in the United States: A Report on the June 2011 Washington, D.C. Growing Philanthropy Summit

  • Description

This paper summarizes the Summit's conclusions and recommendations in four categories: enhancing the quality of donor relationships; developing public trust and confidence in the sector; identifying new audiences, channels, and forms of giving with a strong potential for growth; and improving the quality of fundraising training and development. It addresses these issues in light of research showing that individual giving has remained flat despite advances in fundraising practices and the emergence of new digital channels. With bibliographical references.
