A special report by Campbell & Company, 2017
As the sixth largest economy in the world and a powerhouse of innovation, California affects the entire philanthropic market. This report provides a comprehensive overview of giving trends in the state since the Great Recession of 2007–2009. Our aim is to help professionals and organizations in California navigate the uneven philanthropic landscape that has persisted ever since the banking and housing crises of those years first hit. As a harbinger of larger trends throughout the nation, we also hope that this report will be useful for others engaged in philanthropic work in communities and other regions throughout the nation.
