A Look at Giving in 2018, and What It Means for Today

by Kevin Peters

Last month, Giving USA released its report on charitable giving in the United States, Giving USA 2019: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2018. The report was researched and written by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. For the most recent year, giving rose by almost $3 billion from 2017, from $424.74 billion to $427.71 billion. However, when inflation is factored in, this represents a decrease of 1.7%.

Online Workshop: DIY Dashboards—Make Beautiful, Easy to Follow Dashboards for Your Nonprofit’s Leaders

Thursday, August 8, 2019

Why wait until the end of the year to write a lengthy report when you can share data early and often with dashboards? In this workshop, Ann K. Emery will review the best-bang-for-your-buck data visualization design principles, like using color and text to tell your story. Once you’ve designed one great graph, it’s time to combine multiple graphs together for your report, slide show, or handout. You’ll view Ann’s real-life examples so that you can see how grids, white space, and visual hierarchies are applied in each setting. You’ll also explore the major dashboard types. Ann will share her nine sample dashboards with you and you’ll vote on which two or three styles you’d like to create from scratch in Excel. Life is short and Ann is only going to teach you about visualizations that make a difference.

GrantStation 20th Anniversary

Fly Little Birdie, Fly!

Part four of the history of GrantStation series

There are five stages that all small businesses go through regardless of what they offer. The first stage is the startup phase and it requires a good, solid business idea, a smattering of initial customers, significant cash, and a heck of a lot of stamina. At GrantStation, we had hammered our way through these early startup pains and by 2007 we had moved on to the second stage of business growth. This second stage is all about survival.
