The 2010 Nonprofit Fundraising Survey:
Funds Raised in 2010 Compared with 2009

Two-thirds of surveyed charities report contributions held steady or improved in 2010.

Nonprofits that invested in fundraising staff or resources were more likely to see increases. The winter report from the Nonprofit Research Collaborative discusses fundraising in 2010 by size of organization, type of charity, tactics or fundraising vehicle used, and share of contributions received from different donor types (individuals, foundations, corporations, bequests, and other charities). The survey represents a unique collaboration by the Urban Institute’s National Center for Charitable Statistics with GuideStar, Indiana University’s Center on Philanthropy, the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the Foundation Center, and Blackbaud.
