Charitable giving in the U.S. will grow by 3.6 percent in 2017 and by an additional 3.8 percent in 2018, according to The Philanthropy Outlook 2017 & 2018, a new report researched and written by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. The report is presented by Marts & Lundy, a leading fundraising and philanthropy consulting firm. “Continued growth in the overall economy will lead to a rise in philanthropic giving this year and next,” said Amir Pasic, Ph.D., the Eugene R. Tempel Dean of the school. “Our research indicates that all types of donors—individuals, foundations, corporations and estates—are likely to increase their giving in each of the next two years. Nonprofit organizations and the people they serve can find encouragement in the anticipated expansion of giving.”
