From The Chronicle: Year-End Giving Update
Charities have chalked up mixed results as they seek donations in the final weeks of the year, reports The Chronicle of Philanthropy.
Thirty-seven of the 66 charities The Chronicle contacted said that contributions had dropped this year. The remaining 29 said contributions were flat or had risen.
Even organizations that have received big increases are worried, however, because they say demand is increasing fast and they are facing cuts in government aid.
The Chronicle will continue to report on year-end results in the coming days; feel free to send your results to firstname.lastname@example.org.
