Funding News and Grant Tips

Global Share of Those Giving to Charity Fell in 2017
The share of the world's population age 15 or older who report giving money to charity fell slightly for the second consecutive year in 2017, an annual report from the Charities Aid Foundation finds.
Based on data from the Gallup World Poll, an ongoing research project carried out in more than 146 countries, the 2018 edition of the CAF World Giving Index found that 29.1 percent of the more than 150,000 people surveyed in 2017 said they had made a cash donation to a charity, down from 29.6 percent in 2016, while 21.1 percent said they had volunteered, up from 20.8 percent, and 51.1 percent said they had helped a stranger, up from 49.6 percent. While the share of those making a cash donation rose in developed nations (from 40 percent to 42 percent), it fell in developing nations (from 25 percent to 24 percent) as well as among older people, who traditionally have been the most likely to give. 
According to the report, the combination of an upward trend in giving in Africa, a slight downward trend in the Americas, and a fairly flat trend elsewhere has narrowed the giving gap between the continents. Excluding Oceania (which in the CAF survey includes only Australia and New Zealand), the gap between the lowest-scoring continent, Africa, and the second highest-scoring continent, Asia, has narrowed to just 1 percentage point, from 6 percentage points five years ago. 
Now in its ninth year, the index ranked Indonesia as the most generous country, with 78 percent of Indonesians saying they had donated money, 53 percent saying they had volunteered, and 46 percent saying they helped a stranger. Myanmar, which had topped the list for four years running, fell to ninth place, due largely to a drop in the share of its citizens who said they had volunteered, while the United States edged up to fourth place, after slipping from second to fifth last year. In addition, Haiti made its debut in the top twenty at number fourteen, with 54 percent of Haitians saying they had donated money, 31 percent saying they had volunteered, and 62 percent saying they had helped a stranger.
The report also notes high levels of generosity in some countries experiencing civil war, conflict, and unrest, including Libya, ranked the most generous country in terms of helping a stranger, with 83 percent of respondents reporting having done so.

Revenue of Largest Nonprofits Up Five Percent in 2017
Robust stock market returns contributed to sizable increases in investment income at the country's largest nonprofits in 2017, while a wave of contributions from the public also boosted revenues, the NonProfit Times reports.
According to the thirtieth annual NPT 100 study, the longest-running study of nonprofits with at least 10 percent of their revenue derived from public support, aggregate total revenue for the hundred largest organizations in the U.S. rose approximately 5 percent in 2017, to more than $81 billion, while their total assets topped $1 trillion, with all categories of revenue seeing increases, including government support, which was up 3 percent, to almost $10.4 billion. On the expense side, the organizations on the list experienced a modest overall increase of 2.87 percent, to $76.88 billion, with expenses in most categories rising less than 3 percent; the exception was fundraising, where expenses jumped 7 percent, to $3.9 billion.
As it has in the past, the YMCA of the USA topped the list with $7.4 billion in total revenue, including $974 million in public support, while the Humane Society of the U.S., with $178 million in revenue, came in at number 100. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria were all factors in the American Red Cross raising $2.67 billion in revenue, although the total represented a year-over-year increase of only $58 million.

Giving to Charities Reflects Growing Wealth Gap
America's growing economic divide is evident in American giving patterns, a new Chronicle of Philanthropy study finds.
Based on the total value of cash and stock received in 2017 from individuals, corporations, and foundations (excluding government grants, product donations, and contributions to donor-advised funds), America's Favorite Charities 2018 found that gifts to wealth-driven institutions such as colleges and hospitals soared over the past decade, while giving to United Way Worldwide and other household-name "blue-collar" charities that rely on donations from middle-class Americans fell. 
In 2017, United Way Worldwide topped the Chronicle's list with $3.26 billion raised, followed by the Salvation Army ($1.46 billion), ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Hospital ($1.31 billion), Harvard University ($1.28 billion), the Mayo Clinic ($1.14 billion), Stanford University ($1.1 billion), Boys & Girls Clubs of America ($909 million), Compassion International ($819.4 million), Cornell University ($743.5 million), and Lutheran Services in America ($731.5 million).
Between 2007 and 2017, however, the United Way saw contributions fall 28 percent, with several other groups, including the American Cancer Society (No. 14 in 2017; down 34 percent over the past decade) and the Jewish Federations of North America (No. 75; down 41 percent) also posting steep declines. By contrast, giving to colleges and hospitals, which typically run big-gift operations aimed at wealthy alumni and patients, increased 44 percent between 2007 and 2017, as equity markets rallied. Among them were the Mayo Clinic (No. 5 in 2017; up 202 percent over the decade), the University of Notre Dame (No. 39; up 100 percent), the University of Nebraska (No. 96; up 77 percent), and Harvard (No. 4, up 63 percent).

Survey Finds Only One in Five Americans ‘Highly Trust’ Charities
Fewer than one in five Americans say they "highly trust" charities, a report from the BBB Wise Giving Alliance's Give.org finds.
Based on a survey of twenty-one hundred adults, the report, Give.org Donor Trust Report: An In-Depth Look into the State of Trust in the Charitable Sector (80 pages, PDF), found that while 73 percent of respondents said it was very important to trust a charity before making a donation, only 19 percent were willing to score their overall trust in charities a 9 or 10 (on a scale of 1 to 10), and just 10 percent were optimistic about the sector becoming more trustworthy over time. According to the report, although charities were more trusted than organized religion (53.5 percent vs. 46.5 percent), banks (63 percent vs. 37 percent), businesses (66 percent vs. 34 percent), the media (73 percent vs. 27 percent), and government (77 percent vs. 23 percent), only 15 percent of respondents expressed strong confidence in charities' ability to deliver on their promises.
The survey also found that within the sector, nonprofit hospitals, veterans' organizations, and social service charities were the most trusted categories of charities, while educational organizations and police and firefighter organizations all scored lower in relative perceived public trust than they had on a 2001 survey.
When asked what most signals that a charity is trustworthy, "mature" respondents (ages 72-89) were most likely to choose third-party evaluation (56 percent), as were baby boomers (46 percent) and Gen Xers (37 percent). Among younger generations, however, 30 percent of millennial (ages 20-36) and 45 percent of Gen Z (ages 18 and 19) chose "passion/sincerity of appeal," compared with only 9 percent of matures, 13 percent of baby boomers, and 19 percent of Gen Xers. In addition, millennial (29 percent) and Gen Z (25 percent) respondents were more likely than older generations to say it was easy to know whether a charity was trustworthy, as were African-American (26 percent) and Latinx (26 percent) respondents, suggesting that these groups were less likely to take the extra step to vet a charity before giving.

Webinar - 2018 Trends in Grants: What's Happened So Far, and What's to Come
SPONSOR: Thompson Grants
WHEN: December 5, noon to 1:15 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: Using years of awards data, this presentation will focus on grantmaking from an analytics standpoint and provide a “30,000-foot view" of grantmaking to make you as a grant seeker more cognizant of the opportunities world as a whole. 
Leveraging the high capacity for data analytics the Thompson Grants Data Team has, this webinar's objective is to see what the numbers have to say about grantmaking by visualizing complex information in order to show trends that most grant seekers would not otherwise be aware of. This will be accomplished partially through tools like Tableau and other statistical visualizations that take advantage of Thompson Grants' legacy grants databases. 
The presentation best aligns with GPC competency of researching and identifying funding sources through insight into historical giving trends. Thompson Grants’ data services are able to provide clients with opportunities that they would otherwise not be aware of, and match them with a variety of grantors that give their grant seeking portfolio more variety. 
Based on longstanding customer relationships, we have learned that grant seekers tend to go after the same grantors as they have in the past. One of the learning objectives for this presentations is to have listeners become more aware of the opportunities world as a whole and make them aware of why they may be facing some of the challenges they are when it comes to grant seeking. 
This webinar will also highlight specific grant seeker success stories (grant seekers that found funding outside of their typical funders, unique and fruitful partnerships with grantors), in the hopes that this will bring the broader insight back to the micro level, to leave listeners with concrete examples of how a broader view of the grant seeking world can reap rewards. 
Finally, we'll also give some predictions as to where the trends of 2018 could leave grant seekers in 2019, and what they should prepare for when looking for funding
COST: Free.
