Most Wealthy U.S. Households Continued to Give in 2020, Study Finds
Nine out of ten affluent American households continued to give to charity in 2020, a report from Bank of America and the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy finds. Based on a survey of more than sixteen hundred households with a net worth of at least $1 million (excluding the value of their primary home) and/or annual household income of at least $200,000, the 2021 Bank of America Study of Philanthropy: Charitable Giving by Affluent Households found that 88 percent of respondents reported maintaining or increasing their giving in 2020, and that 47 percent made a donation or financially supported an individual or business in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To learn more about the study, go to https://www.privatebank.bankofamerica.com/articles/2021-bank-of-america-study-of-philanthropy-charitable-giving-by-affluent-households.html.

Study Finds 5.2 Percent Fundraising Growth but Low Retention in 2020
Total charitable giving increased 5.2 percent on a year-over-year basis in 2020, even as the typical nonprofit saw a drop in fundraising revenue, a report from the GivingTuesday Data Commons finds. Based on aggregated data from seventy-four giving platforms and issue- and action-specific apps and tools, the report, Giving in Unprecedented Times: A Lookback at 2020 U.S. Giving Data & Trends found that the growth in overall revenue was driven in part by small donors (between $101 and $500 in total 2020 giving) and "supersize" donors (at least $50,001 in giving), who gave 5.8 percent and 11 percent more, respectively, than they did in 2019. For the full report, go to https://www.givingtuesday.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/GT_2020LookBack_Report-FINAL.pdf.
