This quarter, CDW's Learning Lab is raising awareness on giving. There are many resources available through the CDW Learning Lab covering how-to guides on giving, engaging people in giving, trends in giving, and more.
Giving USA is an essential resource in tracking charitable giving in the United States. The report identifies trends, provides data, and illustrates how individuals, corporations and foundations engage to make communities better.
When community members commit to financially support a cause, the result is an enhanced capacity for charitable groups to bring about change. Nonprofits can seek to help citizens, young and old, to better understand their role in giving and its importance in the ability of nonprofits to continue to provide necessary services within communities. CDW's Learning Lab and eLibrary offer a wide range of best practice resources and toolkits on how to get started or to enhance current efforts. These are just a couple of options that are available.
