Giving USA 2013

Giving USA’s 2013 report (released June 18, 2013) reveals that individual giving  in 2012 increased slightly by an estimated 3.9 percent to nearly $229 billion. Overall giving is still below 2007 peak levels. How much was that impacted by the uncertain policy environment? Also worth noting - “Itemized giving comprised 81 percent of the total estimate for giving by individuals in 2012.”
