Since 2001 Ted Hart has provided an estimate of online giving in the United States and around the world. For many years he issued this through the organization he Founded (ePhilanthropy Foundation). The Foundation has ended its work, as we are now promoting the "next generation of ePhilanthropy" : p2pFundraising.org. This estimate is based on the review of hundreds of first hand reports of giving he recieves from charities and review of third-party research projects completed during the time period. Mr. Hart estimates that total online giving in the United States reached approximately $10.44 Billion (USD), a 52% increase over 2006 estimates, driven by significant increases in online giving for both small and large organizations, creativity in strategy and the unprecedented use of the Internet by individuals for non-disaster and disaster support efforts. The United States continues to represents slightly more than 50% of the world-wide giving online. Global giving is estimated to have surpassed $20 Billion (USD).
