Trends in Philanthropy: What Giving USA 2020 can tell us about philanthropy's present and future

This webinar will use top findings from the latest release of Giving USA 2020: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for 2019 to explore the current landscape for philanthropy and offer insight into the new challenges posed by COVID-19 and the economic recession. Anna Pruitt, a lead researcher on Giving USA, reveals the forces that drive charitable giving and identifies key takeaways to help inform your organization's strategy for the end of 2020 and the coming year.
