Scarce resources for Alaska’s nonprofits. A booming retirement age population in Idaho. A shaky economy in Montana following a year of dramatic growth. Oregonians embracing donor-advised funds. Tech professionals flocking to Washington.
The five states that make up the Northwest each face distinct philanthropic challenges and opportunities. While several major studies are published on U.S. giving each year, regional data is traditionally less accessible. To address this gap and help Northwest nonprofits adapt to the philanthropic landscape in which they operate, we created “Unique Northwest: Distinct Giving Trends and Strategies for Five Distinct States.”
This comprehensive report compiles state-by-state research and actionable insights. It begins with a summary of national giving data, followed by an overview of the Northwest philanthropic landscape. The final section of the report focuses on one particular trend in each state, how it will shape giving in the coming years, and what nonprofit leaders can do today to prepare for changes ahead.
For additional commentary and advice, watch our webinar on this topic or contact me to discuss the report findings. Through our on-the-ground Northwest team, Campbell & Company is fully immersed in the region’s philanthropic landscape, and we will continue to follow the giving trends that affect our nonprofit partners.
