Who is Giving? Who is Getting? Giving Trends in the Pandemic Era
February 22, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
In the period between the Great Recession and the Pandemic, more money was given in America—but by far fewer donors. As many as 20-million everyday donors dropped out of giving. How concerned should we be if the longtime American tradition of giving becomes the sole province of the ultra-wealthy?
The Generosity Commission, a project of the Giving Institute, asked the question of how these recent trends have impacted community-based and social service organizations across the US. A research consortium of the Urban Institute, American University, and George Mason University took the challenge and launched Nonprofit Trends and Impact, a nationally representative, long-term panel study, offering fresh data with some good news and some concerning.
At the same time, Una Osili of the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy led a groundbreaking study, Everyday Donors of Color, exploring the motivations and practices of donors of color.
Join the (PSI) in partnership with the Generosity Commission for a virtual discussion highlighting this new research which surfaces important findings on the nonprofit sector and philanthropy across diverse communities in the United States.
Moderator: Jane Wales, Vice President of the Aspen Institute and Executive Director of the Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation (PSI)
