According to Giving USA 2020: The Annual Report on Philanthropy, U.S. charitable giving reached $449.64 billion in 2019, a 4.2 percent increase in current dollars over 2018. Total giving in 2017, 2018, and 2019 represent the three highest levels on record.

In 2019, individuals drove this generosity, buoyed by a robust economic environment. The S&P 500 soared 28.9 percent over 2018,[1] while disposable personal income increased 4.3 percent[2] and GDP grew 4.1 percent,[3] all in current dollars. These three economic indicators are closely tied to charitable giving, paving the way for strong growth in giving in 2019.

According to Giving USA 2019: The Annual Report on Philanthropy, charitable giving in the United States reached $427.71 billion in 2018. This represents a slight increase of 0.7 percent in current dollars and a decline of 1.7 percent when adjusted for inflation. Following four years of steady growth in giving, these mixed results for 2018 reflect a complex giving environment, influenced by economic conditions, public policy, and significant tax law changes.

The specter of tax reform has been looming over development programs since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, but has it made an impact so far?

There’s been plenty of speculation about how these tax changes—especially nearly doubling the standard deduction—may have affected giving in 2018, and the national nonprofit community is deeply concerned. “In the face of diminishing broad-based giving, it’s even more important to monitor how tax reform is impacting the average donor choosing to make a gift,” noted President and CEO Peter Fissinger of Campbell & Company.

The longest government shutdown in the nation’s history officially ended on January 25, 2019. During the 35-day partial shutdown, approximately 420,000 federal workers worked without pay, and another 380,000 were furloughed (TIME, 2019).

Government shutdowns can have heavy impacts for many nonprofit organizations that often work to fill gaps left by suspended federal services.

Many human services organizations see a spike in demand for necessities, such as food and shelter, while simultaneously struggling with a lack of government funding. Other nonprofits, such as environmental and disaster relief organizations, see a less immediate impact.
