      • BY THE NUMBERS
      • “ BIG PICTURE”
    • 3. BY THE NUMBERS: Giving USA 2011 - The State of Philanthropy
    • 4. BY THE NUMBERS: Giving USA 2011 - The State of Philanthropy 33% in 2009
    • 5. BY THE NUMBERS: Giving USA 2011- The State of Philanthropy 2.1% - 2010 (6.2%) – 2008/2009 (adjusted for inflation)

      • Per capita giving is low
      • General Population < 1%
      • Roman Catholics 1.5%
      • Mainline Protestants 2.8%
      • Evangelicals 4.0%
      • There is a strong correlation between fervency of faith and generosity–both to religion and other charities–so perhaps we have a faith problem rather than a giving problem.
