Giving USA 2017:
The Annual Report on Philanthropy
The Phoenix Philanthropy Group provides resources to our clients and communities to better understand and navigate the competitive philanthropic environment.  In this issue of our newsletter, we are pleased to share the latest trends in philanthropy, as reported in the just-released Giving USA 2017 Report. We hope you enjoy this graphical representation of this year's report, as developed in partnership with our colleague firm, The Benefactor Group.  
As was the case last year, giving in 2016 reached a new record! Charitable donations reached a high of over $390 billion and every sector saw an increase in received contributions.  
Giving USA 2017: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2016, is published by the Giving USA Foundation, established by The Giving Institute to advance philanthropy through research and education. The report is researched and written by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.  The Phoenix Philanthropy Group is the only full-service nonprofit/philanthropic consulting firm based in the Southwestern United States that is a member of The Giving Institute. 
As part of our commitment to nonprofits in the Southwest, we will be presenting the report to audiences in Phoenix, San Diego, Long Beach, Las Vegas, Orange County, and Tucson.
