Online Giving Increased 1.2 Percent in 2018
Online giving in the United States increased 1.2 percent on a year-over-year basis in 2018, while overall giving was up 1.5 percent, a report from Blackbaud finds. 
Based on overall giving data from more than 9,000 nonprofit organizations and online giving data from over 5,500 nonprofits, the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact's Charitable Giving Report: How Nonprofit Fundraising Performed in 2018 found that online donations accounted for a record 8.5 percent of overall fundraising revenue (excluding grants), up from 7.6 percent in 2017, and that 24 percent of online donations were made on a mobile device, up from 21 percent. 
According to the report, large organizations — those with annual fundraising revenue in excess of $10 million — saw a 2.3 percent increase in overall giving, compared with 2 percent for midsize organizations (annual fundraising revenue between $1 million and $10 million) and a drop of 2.3 percent for small organizations (annual fundraising revenue of less than $1 million). Online giving to large nonprofits fell 0.5 percent, while midsize and small nonprofits saw increases of 3.7 percent and 0.7 percent. Since 2016, overall online giving has increased 17 percent, with average online gift amounts rising to $147 in 2018. Online donations accounted for 13.4 percent of total fundraising for small nonprofits, compared with 7.8 percent for midsize organizations and 4 percent for large nonprofits. 
In terms of issue areas, arts and culture organizations saw the largest year-over-year growth in both overall giving (5.5 percent) and online giving (5.8 percent), with only the public society benefit (3 percent and 4.4 percent), health care (0.6 percent and 3.3 percent), faith communities (0.3 percent and 2.9 percent), and higher education (2 percent and 1.1 percent) categories seeing increases in both overall and online giving, and environmental, K-12 education, and medical research organizations seeing declines in both overall and online giving.

Nonprofits Missing Out on Social Media Connections
While nonprofit organizations have invested heavily in social media platforms in recent years, they still view social media as a tool for broadcasting announcements and raising awareness rather than as a way to deepen their connections with constituents, a report from consulting firm Dunham+Company finds.
The report, Nonprofits & Social Media: A Missed Connection, analyzed the social media platforms of more than 150 nonprofits in four areas — adoption, response time, integration, and content — and found gaps in nonprofits' use of social media, engagement with other users, and effectiveness. Despite widespread adoption and increased investment in content, charities aren't producing or sharing content often enough or with an optimal mix to maximize user engagement — which in turn limits their success in connecting with and generating responses from their intended audiences. According to Dunham+Company, the nonprofits it profiled are no better at responding to comments, questions, and online donations than they were in a previous study conducted more than four years ago. 
While environmental and animal welfare organizations had the largest median audiences across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram and religious organizations had the smallest, religious groups had the highest rate of audience interaction (0.56 percent), followed by arts, culture, and humanities groups (0.28 percent), health organizations (0.24 percent), human services organizations (0.22 percent), and environmental and animal welfare organizations (0.19 percent). Based on a composite score that factors in audience size, audience engagement, and frequency of posts, the report found health nonprofits to be the most effective users of social media overall, with religious organizations and environmental and animal welfare groups tied for second. 
Individual nonprofits that are most effectively using social media see it as a channel for two-way, interactive communication, the report concludes, and work to optimize each channel for certification, connectivity, and response; offer the most efficacious mix of content, with a focus on video and other visual elements; facilitate more engagement by closing the loop in channel optimization; invest in human or AI capacity to monitor and respond to comments; and use it to fundraise.
