Philadelphia Fundraising Consultant Robert Evans Featured On Nonprofit
Evans to discuss the state of charitable giving in the United States on
Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio.
New York, NY, USA, June 22, 2012 -- Robert I. Evans, Founder and Managing
Director of the Philadelphia fundraising firm EHL Consulting Group, will
join local radio host Tony Martignetti to discuss the results of the
just-released Giving USA Annual Report for 2011, and compare those
results to the figures included in the monthly Atlas of Giving. The two
organizations significantly diverge on methodology: whereas Giving USA is
a survey that details giving based on figures from the previous tax
years, The Atlas uses a forward-looking prediction model.
Host Tony Martignetti and Mr. Evans will contrast the methods and discuss
last year's charitable giving numbers, and predict what these results
might mean for the future of philanthropy in America.
Mr. Evans will be featured live this Friday, June 22 from 1:00PM – 2:00PM
Giving USA's Annual Report detailed that giving by individuals increased
by an estimated 3.9 percent in 2011 to $217.79 billion in contributions;
foundations increased 1.8 percent to $41.67 billion; corporate donations
held steady at 5 percent and $14.55 billion; and bequests rose 12.2
percent to $24.41 billion. Despite these increases, many nonprofits are
still struggling to find new donors and re-engage lapsed ones.
“There is no such thing as donor fatigue,” Mr. Evans elaborated in a
recent presentation hosted by NYC law firm Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP.
“Today’s donors are waiting to be inspired by transformational projects,
and many of today’s nonprofits are not presenting a compelling enough
case for support.”
