This edition of the Nonprofit Fundraising Survey (NFS) reveals to what extent a wide range of charitable organizations in the United States and Canada saw increases, decreases, or no change in charitable receipts in 2014.
More than 1,550 organizations answered Nonprofit Research Collaborative (NRC) survey questions in early 2015 about charitable receipts from January through December 2014. After data cleaning, more than 1,200 organizations could be included in the analysis. Responding charitable groups included large and small organizations (by budget size) and organizations from every subsector from Arts, Culture & Humanities to Religion.
Questions ranged from changes in charitable receipt amounts in 2014, compared with 2013 to expectations for 2015. Sections of this report share findings from the major sections of the survey. Additional reports will be released later in 2015.
