The Nonprofit Research Collaborative (NRC) has just released their report about charitable receipts in 2013. 62% of responding charities saw gift receipts rise, and 67% met their fundraising goal. These are the best results since 2007.
Online giving, events and major gifts remain areas of increased receipts, with increases at 62% of charities. Board giving, foundation grants and corporate support increased at less than 50% of the charities using those methods. In one surprise, this is the second year where receipts have increased in response to telephone appeals. Those are not used by a wide range of charities, but after two years of very low rates of increase, they are trending upward.
