Charitable Giving Statistics


In doing some research recently, I discovered the following statistics which I find to be very useful in my fundraising efforts. For example, did you know?

  • 88% of households give to charity.

  • The average annual household contribution is $2,213 while the median is $870.

  • Americans gave $298.3 billion in 2011. This reflects a 3.9% increase from 2010.

  • Corporate giving held steady in 2011 at $14.55 billion.

  • Foundation giving increased in 2011 to $41.67 billion--a 1.8% increase from 2010.
