In a recent survey, the Nonprofit Research Collaborative found that the number of nonprofits reporting an increase in donations dipped slightly in 2016. Some organizations said the 2016 election had a negative impact on receipts.
Fundraising is still growing for many charitable nonprofits—just not for as many as before.
That’s the key finding of a new report from Nonprofit Research Collaborative (NRC), whose Winter 2017 Nonprofit Fundraising Study revealed that 61 percent of its survey respondents saw an increase in charitable receipts in 2016—a drop from 2015, when 65 percent reported growth.
The survey results are based on responses from representatives of 941 organizations. Among those, 68 percent met their fundraising goals last year, a drop of 5 percent from both 2015 and 2014, but well above the 59 percent seen in 2013.
