Latest Nonprofit Research Collaborative Report

Posted by National Association of Charitable Gift Planners on Apr 25, 2018 10:00:16 AM

CGP has partnered with the Nonprofit Research Collaborative since 2013 to collect data on charitable giving across the nonprofit sector. The Giving Institute is also a partner in the Collaborative, and for the most recent survey, CGP and GI worked together to add questions about planned giving to the Winter 2018 questionnaire.

Among the 1,076 U.S. nonprofits that responded to the most recent NRC survey, 84% reported receiving bequests and 92% actively sought new planned gift commitments. Eighty-five survey responses came via links that were customized for CGP members. That sample is too small to generalize about the broad spectrum of gift planning at U.S. charities. However, there are interesting differences between the CGP group and the general survey response that suggest greater attention to planned giving at organizations employing CGP members.

Planned Giving is Strong in Latest Nonprofit Research Collaborative Report

Posted by National Association of Charitable Gift Planners on May 5, 2017 8:30:00 AM

In the latest report from the Nonprofit Research Collaborative, fewer organizations are reporting growth in charitable receipts in 2016, compared to 2015, but the number of organizations reporting growth in planned gift revenue has not decreased. CGP has partnered with the Nonprofit Research Collaborative since 2013 to collect data on charitable giving across the nonprofit sector. Among the 800 U.S. nonprofits that responded to the most recent NRC survey, 51% reported on new planned gift commitments and 69% reported on gifts that were realized in the past year. When compared with 2015 results, planned giving continued to be a strong source of development revenue.
